Today I tried a Japanese cuisine recipe from Yuka which is called “goya chanpuru” (ゴーヤチャンプル/炒山苦瓜), a local food in Okinawa, Japan. We knew this food when Yuka and I made a trip to Okinawa in November 2018. Although some people don’t like the taste of bitter melon, especially to children, I like bitter melon in this cuisine and its flavour with simple seasoning. Luckily, those ingredients are very easy to get from the local markets or supermarkets. Here’s the recipe and try it.
鹽巴 as much(or little) as you like
bitter melon half
tofu half of a box
eggs 1 or 2
salt as much(or little) as you like
soy sauce 1 tea spoon
broth 1/3 tea spoon
rice wine 1 spoon
mirin 1 spoon
1. Remove the seed of bitter melon and slice the bitter melon. Also, cut the tofu and pork.
2. Pan fry tofu with a little oil until both sides are done and take it out from the frying pan.
3. Stir fry pork. When it’s done, add the bitter melon into the frying pan until the bitter melon is getting soft. And put the precooked tofu back in the frying pan.
4. Mix eggs with the seasonings and pour into the frying pan. Stir fry until all the ingredients are well-done.
