Ampalaya(bitter melon)With Eggs

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1-1/2 cups ampalaya, sliced thin crosswise
    1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    1/2 cup tomatoes, sliced
    2 eggs, slightly beaten
    2 tablespoons shortening
    1/4 cup onion, minced
    1/4 cup water
    2 tsp canola oil
    Salt to taste

Directions

How to cook Ampalaya(bitter melon)With Eggs:

*

Sauté garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons of shortening or oil. Add tomatoes and water, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Add sliced ampalaya, cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Season with salt.
*

Add the beaten eggs spreading all over the vegetables. Cook over slow heat until the eggs are slightly firm. Add an extra 2 tablespoons of oil if necessary to keep the eggs from sticking.
*

Avoid stirring the vegetables as it squeezes more of the bitter flavor of the vegetables and makes the dish unpalatable. Yield: 4 servings.

  • My first time trying bitter melon - and it's definitely bitter! The tomatoes helped cut the bitterness, so I don't recommend skipping them; I'd actually add twice as much as this calls for. Interesting veggie, and interesting recipe. Thanks for sharing! - 12/29/12
