Snake Gourd With Egg Stir Fry

Enough of CNY dishes...back to simple stir fry dishes. Because my tennis elbow has been giving me pain. I have been resting at home and this is one simple dish I cooked for Wild Boar and myself.  The gourd is sweet by itself.  I saw this dish on Wendy's blog and could not resist buying one and stir fry it myself with egg. I omitted the spicy-ness . It turned delicious :)  Love this dish and will add more to my meals from now onwards.

Snake Gourd With Spicy Egg Stir Fry - adapted from Wendy of Table For 2

1 snake gourd (200 gm)
2 shallots
2 cloves garlic
1 small piece of turmeric (1 tsp ) - * I omitted this
1 red chilli - * I omitted this
1 egg
1/3 tsp salt or more to taste
2 tbsp of oil
¼ cup water

  1. Wash snake gourd. Half the gourd and scoop seeds out with spoon.  Slice the gourd about 4-5mm thick
  2. Mill shallots, garlic, turmeric and chilli together.
  3. In a wok, put in oil. On medium heat, sauté the chilli paste until dry and fragrant.
  4. Put in salt and snake gourd slices and toss them around to cook for about 1 minute.
  5. Push the gourd slices to the side and crack the egg to the center. Spread the egg a bit and push the gourd slices back in. Scramble the egg and gourd together.
  6. Put in ¼ cup water and let it cook until the water is no longer visible.
  7. Taste it, adjust if necessary and then dish up.
