How to cook Ampalaya(bitter melon)With Eggs:
  • Sauté garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons of shortening or oil. Add tomatoes and water, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Add sliced ampalaya, cover and cook for 3 more minutes. Season with salt.
  • Add the beaten eggs spreading all over the vegetables. Cook over slow heat until the eggs are slightly firm. Add an extra 2 tablespoons of oil if necessary to keep the eggs from sticking.
  • Avoid stirring the vegetables as it squeezes more of the bitter flavor of the vegetables and makes the dish unpalatable. Yield: 4 servings.
