Food Trip Friday---Ampalaya and Misis Edz


Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) I like it sauted with lots of tomatoes and egg. For the health concious, I learned to prepare it with garlic roasted in olive oil.

Misis Edz Chilli Garlic is the best I have ever tasted! Crunchy garlic with Chilli bits in Soy Bean Oil. It goes well with any Filipino dish. Especially grilled.

The chili garlic is inviting, hope I can take the hot taste of it. BTW, am an ampalaya fan too, love it kinilaw style also.

We call this Bitter Gourd and it is very bitter. How do you get rid of the bitterness?

Enchie said...

you can get rid "a bit" of the bitterness by removing the white part when you cut it. Or choose the small ones.

MsRay said...

Your ampalaya dish, literally, makes my mouth water, Enchie! I hope I can find bitter melon here in my new home so that I can cook it, too. Pag ready na ako, I'll give you a buzz for the recipe ha?

Tetcha said...

I love sauteed ampalaya with tomatoes and eggs. I will try Misis Edz, too.

Jane said...
