Looking for a cheap yet healthy and delicious viand today? Why not try my Sauteed Bittermelon with eggs today?
This is my version of this really healthy dish. I just saute garlic, onion and tomato in a teaspoon of oil. Then put sliced ampalaya or bitter melon and let it simmer under medium heat for 3 minutes.
After that, crack and scramble an egg then put it on top of sliced ampalaya, do not mix. Taste and add a dash of salt based on your preferences. Let it simmer for another two minutes then serve over cooked rice.
Seems easy isn’t it? Do not forget to wash ampalaya with water and rock salt before cooking it. Do not mix ampalaya while cooking it, just let it simmer along with the rest of the ingredients to preserve the flavor.
Aside from egg, you can also add ground pork and /or shrimps. I like it with eggs if I am on a budget, but I also cook this with ground pork and /or shrimps to make it extra special.
