Simple Ways Of Cooking Spiky Bitter Gourds.

Yesterday I did a post on "Growing Spiky Bitter Gourd in my garden" and you can click here to read if you have missed it. The fruits did not mature all at the same time and it was a good thing that the harvest was spaced out with 1 or 2 fruits at a time.
With freshly harvested greens from my garden, I have no excuse not to cook. Today I share with you how I use/cook my freshly harvested spiky bitter gourds.

Dinner #1 - Simple Home cooked Dinner For 2 people.
1.1. Bitter Gourd Omelette. Lightly stir fry the finely sliced bitter gourd, sprinkle some salt & pepper and pour in the beaten eggs.
1.2. Roasted pig trotter and salted vegetable soup.

Dinner #2 - Simple Home cooked Dinner For 2 people.
2.1. Sambal belacan four angled beans, spiky bitter gourd + minced meat. Stir fry the pounded chili and prawn paste in a little oil. Add in the minced pork, stir fry and then add in the 4 angled beans and bitter gourd. Add in a little water, simmer till cooked.
2.2. Chicken + potatoes + carrot + tomatoes + onions soup.

The following photos from Ho Yan Hor Museum are for joining Tuesday's Treasures & Image-in-ing.
This was how we washed our clothes in the old days. A metal basin, a wooden scrubbing board, a metal water scoop and a small wooden stool to sit on.
Wooden antique staircase, handrails and floor boards.
Wooden antique writing table, rattan chair and a Chinese calculator (Abacus) on the table.

So I am not writing to you as those who need to know the truth,

but I warn you as those who can discern the difference

between true and false.
