It's the salt scrub, you use salt to get rid of the bitterness. This technique is also used on labanos if you are familiar with this :) I learned this trick from my mom.

Hi Annmarie! Yes...I was so excited when I made it because I never used to eat ampalaya before, now I can! :)

To remove bitterness, scrape as much of the white inside lining as possible. I think this is where the bitterness come from. And I've always been told not to stir the ampalaya when cooking as this will release the bitterness. Another great recipe is to saute with garlic, onion, tomatoes, shrimp and a little pork. Pour in a little water, then pour in the ampalaya and some sotanghon. Let cook and DON'T EVER STIR!!! As for me, I don't use fresh shrimp and pork anymore. I just use the shrimp bouillon which is just as tasty.

Hi Stef! I guess anyway you look at it, love it or hate it, ampalaya sure has blazed itself on the consciousness of Filipinos everywhere! :) Iba talaga ang dating!

Joey, LOL! I've been bloghopping through all the different entries, and been commenting on one that hers is the 3rd entry, then I found a 4th, and now a 5th, on ampalaya! I'm loving all the posts on it! Being a late ampalaya lover myself, this is now one of my favorites (it also brings me back home to my Papa, as it's one of his favorites too).

I love LP18! It might actually cure my ampalaya-fear. I love what you did with the ampalaya, it looks especially yummy.

(I can't believe I'm saying this about ampalaya!)

Hi Marvin! I have lived in the Philippines all my life (except for brief stint working in Europe) and I have never been able to eat ampalaya until this dish! Bravo to you for learning to appreciate it all the way in California! :) Now I have to learn to make pinakbet...

Hi Veron! I'm thrilled, thank you! :) (((blush)))

Hi Ces! Thank you! :) It was more of the challenge of it (cooking something I don't like), and wanting to make it from my husband who loves it :) And LP18 provided the perfect opportunity!

Hi Nupur! We have a lot of those quirky expressions! :) Bitter melon also has both legions of fans and lots of detractors here as well...This egg preparation is very typical here and, they say, is the best way to "indroduce" the veg to the uninitiated :)

2007-06-01T06:26:00.000+08:00

LOL...I *loved* learning the meaning of this quirky expression :) In India, bitter melons are either loved or hated, but prepared in a hundred different ways. But none with eggs...so thanks for this creative recipe!

Hi Jo. Although I took part in Lasang Pinoy for the first time, I actually stumbled across your blog from your comment on Clotilde's blog. Funny, that.

Anyways, since I grew up in California, it took many years for me to be able to enjoy ampalaya. Pinakbet is my favorite dish, and I used to pick the ampalaya from my plate and eat everything else in the Pinakbet. But now I actually enjoy the flavor of bitter melon.

2007-05-31T23:27:00.000+08:00

Hi Evinrude! Thanks for the feedback on the salt rub and squeezing :) Well, it's supposed to be bitter...but 'squeezing' much of the bitterness out is a good way to initiate newbies like me! ;)

Hi Ipshi! Oh no! Don't tell my husband I've squeezed out the vitamins! I don't think I can go back to full force bitter melon...heeheehee :)

Hi Veron! It's good for my skin? Really? Wow...it get's even better! :) This is the perfect dish for an ampalaya-phobe :)

2007-05-31T20:25:00.000+08:00

Ampalaya was my #1 enemy growing up...but it is so good for you ...and your skin. Maybe if I follow your recipe I will be cured too, since it looks so good!

Hey Jo! I hate bitter gourd too! Here in India, they're called Karela. My mom has always been forcing me to eat them and iv been the obedient little girl. The problem is that she doesnt subscribe to the removing of it's innards and squeezing.
She says that takes away the bitter gourd's nutritive value! :(
