Number of Servings: 1


    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


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
