Bittergourd/Bitter Melon Omelette With 3 Types Of Egg

After church service last week, we went out to have lunch at Kok Thai Restaurant and this was one of the dishes we ordered. There were 11 of us . Every once a month , we will stay back for fellowship and some of us will have lunch together and this is one of the occasion whereby we fellowship at the restaurant over lunch and we love having lunch a big family. After having eaten this simple yet delicious bittergourd dish , I could not sleep that night thinking how to recreate this dish for our dinner :p  Trying to figure out the cooking method in the mind and finally managed to get some sleep after some figuring out :p

Using three types of egg and one medium size bittergourd and garlic and a dash of white and I have a dish that tasted exactly like the one served at the restaurant.  Wild Boar was impressed coz he said this " this is exactly  a carbon copy of those we ate at Kok Thai  "  LOL! I am  happy that he said that coz I will be cooking this very often then :p  The rest of the photos are for drooling :)

And the last one .......mmmmmm, I garnished the bittergourd omeletter with the scrapped out crispy egg from the bottom of my non stick pan ...creating a beautiful and aromatic bittergourd omelette :)  Waste not as the saying goes :p

Bittergourd Omelette With 3 Kinds Of Eggs


1 medium sized bittergourd/bitter melon  - cut into thin slices

Whisk together :-
1 salted egg- steamed and cut into bit size
1 century egg - cut into bit size
2 eggs - whisked
a dash of white pepper

salt to taste

4 pips of garlic - chopped fine
2 tbsp of grapeseed oil


Heat up non-stick pan with 2 tbsp of grapeseed oil. Saute the garlic till fragrant , add in the bittergourd slices and stir fry till half cooked, pour in the egg mixture over the cooked bittergourd and let the egg mixture be cooked for another 2 minutes , then break up the omelette and stir fry the bittergourd omelette for another 2 minutes and dish up. You can add in more eggs if you like.  Serve with steaming hot rice .

Enjoy !

Have a nice day !
