Cook with Ayden: Stir-Fried Bitter Gourd with Egg
Bitter gourd is one of the healthiest vegetables known to mankind but not many children like to eat it as the name suggests, it can be bitter!
It is a surprise that little Ayden loves eating bitter gourd.
I did not cook bitter gourd throughout big brother Ethan’s growing up years as that boy totally dislikes it. Recently, I was craving for bitter gourd and decided to fry some for myself. Ayden took a bite of it and to my surprise, he actually loves it and requested for more. I ended sharing my plate of bitter gourd with him.
From that day onwards, I fry bitter gourd often at home. I also forced big brother Ethan to eat some and after several times, he starts to develop a liking towards it.
If you want to reduce the bitterness of bitter gourd, rub salt on bitter gourd and leave for a while. Rinse away the salt before cooking.
These days, I can serve bitter gourd for dinner at home and the boys will finish them effortlessly.
Today, I taught Ayden to fry his own bitter gourd. I actually wanted to teach him to fry bitter gourd omelette but he scrambled the eggs instead so yeah please ignore him when he says bitter gourd OMELETTE as that was our initial intention but tak jadi lah
