Stuffed (Not so bitter) bitter melon curry

Bitter melons are very good for health but how many people can enjoy them?  Probably very few.  Either we have to put two much sweetener or oil or we get rid of skin or seeds or we just have to eat it because it's good for us, then it doesn't serve the purpose, but this recipe doesn't call for either and here we are not throwing away any part of bitter melon but still very delicious.
