Bittergourd and egg stir-fry


This is a super easy light dish which has appeared in many blogs.  I didn't use much oil to cook this and occasionally it will appear on the table whenever I prepare white porridge, much to everyone's delight!




Heat up the wok with some oil, toss in the sliced bittergourd, stir fry.  Toss in the eggs, give it quick stir and that's all there is to it!





Fuss free, light and refreshing ....I do find the crunchy bitter gourd, so yummy!

Ingredients
  • 350 gm bittergourd
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1  Tbsp oil
  • Some light soya sauce and pepper
  • Salt to taste
Preparation
  1. Wash the bittergourd, cut open lengthwise, remove the seeds and slice it up diagonally.
  2. Mix in some salt and leave aside for about 15 mins.
  3. Squeeze out and discard the water from the now limped bittergourd.  Rinse and drain.
  4. Lightly beat up the eggs, add in pepper and light soya sauce.
  5. Heat up the wok with oil, toss in the bittergourd, stir-fry.
  6. Add in the beaten eggs, give it a quick stir.
  7. Add salt to taste and dish up.
  8. Serve hot with rice or plain white porridge.

    If you add in some salt, then after a while, squeeze out the water, give it a rinse, helps to remove some bitterness of the gourd.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

Hawaiian Biscuits ~ 夏威夷饼

I was introduced to this Hawaiian Biscuit by a friend who bought this for me to try.  I was curious about the name and was wondering what's so 'Hawaiian' about these biscuits.  I understood, after the first bite of a Macadamia nut.  So the 'Hawaiian' thing is the Macadamia nut.  Since I have some lotus paste left after the mooncake festival, thought I'd give this a try.  I used the recipe for the pastry from my 'Lo  Por Paeng/Wife Biscuit' post and just wrap up some lotus paste with some Macadamia nuts.  This is a yummy biscuit to be enjoyed at any time of the day and the biscuits stayed crispy even on the fourth day, kept in an air-tight container.
