Bitter melons are one of those vegetables you just hate when you're a kid but grow to love it as you get older.

If you haven't ever tried bitter melon before and are curious to experience the taste, this recipe will be great for you to use when trying it for the first time. We will show the technique to help lessen the bitterness, yet still preserve its unique flavor.


2 mature, medium bitter melons
4 cloves of garlic (smashed)
2 eggs
1 tbsp of soy sauce
2 tbsp of cooking oil
4 tbsp of salt
(Optional) 1 tbsp of oyster sauce
(Optional) 1/2 to 1 tsp of sugar
(Optional) Ground white pepper


Cut both of the bitter melons into 3-4 sections, half the sections and scrape the seeds and white inner part out with a spoon.
Thinly slice each section and put them in a large bowl. Add salt to help absorb some of the bitterness.
Massage the salt into the thin slices and then squeeze them repeatedly to get the juice out. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Drain the juice and rinse the bitter melon with water and soak for another 15-20 minutes to try and get as much salt out as possible, then drain.
Scramble the eggs in a bowl and set it aside
Heat a pan and add cooking oil. Once the oil is hot, add in the smashed garlic.
Add the thin slices of bitter melon, soy sauce, and (optional) oyster sauce.
(Optional) Add sugar and white pepper.
Pour the scrambled eggs in, mixing them well until they are fully cooked.
Serve with freshly cooked jasmine rice!

If this recipe becomes too dry while you're stir-frying it, you can add small amounts of water from time to time.

Also, when picking bitter melons, it's good to keep in mind that mature bitter melons have a light green skin color. These mature melons are less bitter than the younger fruits, which tend to be dark green.
