Stir-fry Bittergourd WIth Prawns & Salted Egg

Saw this interesting dish from Lilian's Blog(Food Heaven). She had it on a local coffee shop stall and had briefly share the idea and recipe on how to replicate this dish. I had never used salted egg as a seasoning for dish before and this is my very first time.

So far whenever I cooked this stir-fry bittergourd dish, I always followed what my dad did as to add in prawns and egg then season with some oyster sauce. So the adding of salted egg is really something new for this dish. I follow the guideline from what Lilian had mention and come up with my own version.Posted by Picasa

1 Small Bittergourd, about 150g
100g Minced Pork/Pork Slices
6-8 Medium Prawn, shelled and devein
1 Salted Egg
1 Fresh Chicken Egg
3-4 Garlic Cloves, minced

1.Remove seeds from the bitter gourd and slice it thinly before rubbing it with with 1 teaspoon of salt and rinse well with water.
2. Crack the salted egg in a bowl, remove the egg yolk and mashed it with a folk to break up into pieces, do keep the egg white for later use.
3. Preheat a pan with 1 tablespoon of oil, saute the garlic until fragrant, add in pork and prawn and stir-till half done.
4. Add in the bittergourd and salted egg yolk, stir for a few second until the yolk changes colour then add in 100ml water and let it simmer for about 2 minutes.
5. Lastly add in the salted egg white and fresh egg, stir until well combine. Dish up and serve.

a) The salted egg should be able to flavour the dish, you might need 2 salted eggs if you used a lot of bittergourd.
b) The end result of the dish should be mushy dish with lots of eggs.
