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 know I should eat more bittergourd!! But I will be the only in my household that eat it so I hardly ever buy. What a shame right?

    Too bad, I’m the only one who loves bitter gourd in the family. The bright side is that I can enjoy the whole dish every time I cook it, haha…

    I’ve never cared much for bitter gourd, but I might be willing to give it another try…

    I’ve never cooked bitter gourd! I need to try it, and it looks delicious with the egg.

    I love this dish but I used salted egg yolk instead of egg. Unhealthy but still yummy. Next round, I will use chicken egg. :)
