Interesting curry. I haven't heard using raw mango with bitter gourd before. In fact I rarely cook bitter gourd since neither I nor Susheel like its bitter taste. But am curious to know that since you have used raw mango, does it do anything to change the bitterness of the gourd. How would this curry taste? tangy, sour or bitter?

Mango has been used to minimize the bitterness of the bittergourd. As far as the taste is concerned its a mixture of sweet(jaggery), tangy, sour and slight bitter.
