Love it or hate, just eat it. It's good for you ;)

once you've peeled and cut the ampalaya, it's important to soak it completely in lukewarm salted water. 5 mins works, but will still be bitter, for the best result and to try appease all tastes, go for 3 hours or overnight.

Ginisang Ampalaya at Itlog
(Stir Fried Bitter Gourd with Egg)

1 bitter gourd, cut and soaked
1/2 red onion sliced
2 cloves of garlic minced
2 eggs
10 cherry tomatoes sliced in two
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. cook all the ingredients except for the ampalaya and eggs for 5 mins on medium heat. Make.
2. toss in the patted dry ampalaya, fry for 5mins. When the Ampalaya is in the pan for about 5mins, don't touch it, let it cook and let the steam come out ; that will help remove additional bitterness.
3. scramble the eggs and toss them in for a minute. Toss tougher.
