Ginisang Ampalaya

Ginisang Ampalaya
Ginisang Ampalaya, I bought these ampalaya (bitter gourd) the other day from my favorite neighborhood Filipino store. It is not the ordinary green colored ampalaya that normaly seen in market. It is so big in size it must have been about sixteen inches in length and two inches in width, color is pale yellowish green. I thought this will make a good ginisa with egg.


1 big size ampalaya, split cut in half seeded and sliced crosswise
100 g. small size shrimp, shelled
100 g. pork, diced
1/2 head garlic, minced
1 medium size onion, chopped
1 big size tomato, chopped
1 small size red bell pepper, sliced julienne
3 pcs. egg, beaten
1/4 c. patis
vegetable oil
