Bitter Gourd Omelette

Ever since knowing how to prevent bitter gourd from being too bitter, I started to enjoy eating bitter gourd.  This fried bitter gourd omelette is a very easy dish to prepare and I was happy that my hubby likes it.  Even my niece enjoys this vegetable which most young people may not fancy at all.
I should have cooked the whole portion which uses 4 eggs, then we didn't have to fight for it.

Recipe Source – Hawkers’ Fair Simplified [modified]
[serves 3]
½ bittergourd [about 200 gm] – seeded and white pith scrapped clean – thinly sliced
Salt to taste
1 tbsp chopped garlic
2 tbsp oil
Combine Together
2 eggs
½ tsp salt
½ tbsp light soy sauce
Dash of pepper and chicken stock granules
  1. Heat oil in a non-stick wok, add in chopped garlic and bitter gourd to fry with salt until soft.
  2. Spread out the fried bitter gourd into a thin layer, then pour in the egg mixture in a circular pattern to cover the vegetable.
  3. Leave to fry until the set.
  4. Flip it over and continue to fry until golden brown.
  5. Dish up to serve.

Hi Yen, this omelette is good. Slightly brown, fragrant, savoury with a little bit of bitterness from the bittergourd. This is good with rice or porridge.

Kimmy, I usually fry bittergourd with egg and I love it. Next time, I should make it into an omelette.

Hi Joyce, cooking bittergourd in omelette form is a good option to frying it with dried prawns and egg.

Hi Phong Hong, these days I love frying bittergourd in omelette form cos' it is more fragrant and the bittergourd is just a little bitter. Tender bittergourd and crispy omelette also encourage children to eat this vegetable.
