Note: This is an old recipe from 2007 which has been re-written and updated with new photos.

Bitter gourd is a healthy vegetable and it is known to reduce “heatiness” – a really much-needed attribute for tropical dwellers like me who is living in hot and humid Singapore.

Bitter gourd is very much an acquired taste for me because when I was a kid, I did not dare to eat it at all, but now I have since grew to love it. This bittergourd with egg (苦瓜炒蛋) is a classic local home-cooked Chinese home-style dish where fermented black beans and eggs are stir-fried with the bitter gourd slices.

    I recalled I never hated bitter melon even as a kid. Coincidentally, I have my bitter melon post coming up soon :p

    Hmmm….it seems like I’m the only one who is not a fan. My dad had to ‘force’ me to eat it! And now that I’m the cook in my home – it’s off the menu:)

    Missed out so many of your yummy posts. I’m trying to catch up. Love bitter gourd since I was a kid. I usually put small prawns and dried shrimp chilli paste to cook it. I wish my kids will love it too but so hard to make them like it :)
