How to make it

  • Place the cleaned and sliced bitter melon in a large bowl.
  • Add salt and lukewarm water. Set aside for at least 5 minutes ( this removes its bitterness, the longer you leave them the less bitter it will become ).
  • Drain the bitter melon in a piece of cloth then squeeze them tightly until all the liquid drips. Set aside.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a pan, Saute the garlic, onion and tomato.
  • Add the shrimps. Stir well.
  • Add the bitter melon and mix well.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Beat the eggs and pour over the bitter melon. Let the eggs cook partially before stirring.
  • Serve hot.

    A lot of people probably have never tried bitter melon. Being it looked like a cucumber and tasted like chayote squash. I love it and you have posted a great way to enjoy this rare treat. \0
