Stir-fried Bittergourd with Eggs

This is always 1 of my favourite dish to go with a bowl of plain rice. It is cheap, delicious, comfort food for me and my grandma. A dish that I always eat, growing up..

My grandma always fry it with eggs, and I remember when I was a kid, I always pick out the eggs to eat and not the Bittergourd. Hahaha~ But as I am older, yes I am getting old, I learn to appreciate Bittergourd. The light hint of bitter, coupled with the sweetness from the eggs makes it a very delicious dish. A simple and nutritious dish.

I am sharing this dish today, my own interpretation of the dish in my way. Our dinner tonight on a Friday!

Stir-fried Bittergourd with Eggs
1 Bittergourd, wash and remove the seeds
3 eggs
1tsp Fish Gravy to taste

1) Cut Bittergourd into strips. Beat eggs and leave for later use.
2) Fry garlic til fragrant. Add in Bittergourd and fry.
3) Add a little water to simmer til Bittergourd is cooked, it will be soft. Pour beaten eggs over the top.
4) Once eggs are 80% cooked, turn over to the other side and continue to cook. 
5) Once eggs are cooked, serve.

Hi Priscilla, thanks again for your egg posting :) Very yummy, I also love to cook bittergourd this way, sometimes I add 1 salted egg too.

Hi Priscilla, one of the best ways to cook bittergourd. Sometimes, I cooked it in omelette form, that is less bittergourd and more eggs.
