Stir-Fried Bittergourd With Egg

Bittergourd is one of my favourite vegetable esp the Chinese bittergourd which has minimum bitterness compared to the Indian bittergourad. normally in Chines es recipe they prefer to cut down the bitterness by adding carrots and eggs. I love the combination of the carrot's sweetness and the flavour of the egg in this dish is marvelous.

Serving Size: 4

1 cup sliced Chinese bittergourd
1 red onion chopped
2 garlic clove minced finely
1tsp chillie powder
1/2tsp tumeric powder
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 egg
1tbsp crushed chillie flask
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation Methods:

Infuse 2tbsp oil with the crushed chille flask followed by the minced garlic and chopped onions. Saute till the onions turned golden brown, then add the sliced bitergourd, shredded carrots and salt. Saute them for 10 minutes and add the spice powder and cook till the raw smell are removed and veggies tender. Then move them to one side of the wok,add 1tbsp oil and break the egg in with a dash of pepper and cover with a lid. Once the egg is well done , shredded with the spoon and mix the vegetable well and adjust the level of salt. transfer to a serving dish and serve hot.
