Green, pod-shaped and covered in what seems like blisters all over its skin – this distinct looking vegetable-fruit definitely does not look pleasing to the eyes. Like its name implies, bitter gourd has an acrid bitter flavour that may be difficult for many to appreciate. However, looking past that ‘slightly disturbing’ appearance and sharp taste, this bumpy-looking vegetable is an excellent source of vitamins and is packed with a long list of nutritional properties.
But even with that suite of health benefits, it’s pointless if the main ingredient totally robs the joys of eating it. Here’s why we have found the perfect solution for you to restore your health and at the same time, counter all that bitterness!
Salted egg yolk is the answer – the simplest, most effective way to mask that sharp bitter taste.
The fusion of rich salty and sweet umami flavour goes well with almost everything, it’s no wonder this all-purpose orange yolk has been stirring up such a huge craze in Asia. Simply throw in the slices of gourd into melted mashed yolk along with condiments and leave it up to those rich orange orbs to work its wonders, turning even the most unpleasant food into a scrumptious one for all to enjoy!
