How to make Chinese Stir-fried Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg

Chinese Stir-fried Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg


1 bitter gourd
1 salted egg
10g green onion, chopped
2 tablespoon oil


1. Cut bitter gourd to half and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Slice it thin.
2. Heat oil in a pan and stir fry bitter gourd until half cooked.
3. Crack salted egg on it and stir fry over high heat until cooked. Dish up and serve.


Rub a little bit of salt on the bitter gourd and leave for a few minutes to reduce the bitterness. Dark green bitter gourd is bitterer than light green bitter gourd.

    Great recipe. What’s your opinion on parboiling the bitter gourd to make it not as bitter?
