How to cook… Stir-fried Bitter Gourd and egg

Today we are cooking a stir-fried dish with bitter gourd and egg. In Thai it is called “phat ma-ra sai khai”. It is another one of those simple dishes that doesn’t take long to prepare or cook. In the ingredients shown below, you can see two eggs and sliced bitter gourd.

You need to prepare the bitter gourd first by washing it and then slicing it in half lengthwise. Remove and discard the insides and then cut into slices like in the picture above. Heat some oil in the work and then add the sliced bitter gourd. Cook until it becomes tender. Season with light soy sauce and oyster sauce. I only had normal soy sauce so hence the darker look. Finish by breaking the eggs into the wok. Give it a good stir until the egg is cooked through. Come back next week for another recipe at www.thai-blogs.com.
