  1. Awesome recipe. Never thought of combining bittergourd with seaweed in cooking.

    Thanks for recipe Shirley. I will cook this for my family this coming weekend. Good to cool our body as the weather has been crazy and hot over here.

  2. Soup looks delicious, I really want to try it :-)

  3. It looks very nice! And it doesn't surprise me that food can be used as preventive medicine and to cure ailments. And the best part is that it has no side effects (unless one is allergic, of course). Thank you so much for sharing, dear Shirley.

  4. Love that this is easy and quick to make. Have a great week.

  5. Yummy! I can see this being a hit with my parents! I can imagine replacing the bitter gourd with winter melon or old cucumber as well! Love soups with melon and egg.

  12. Now I want to try a meal with bitter melon!


  13. Is it actually bitter? Looks yummy though.

    1. There's a slight bitterness & soaking the bitter lemon in salt water helps reducing it. Hope you'll get to try it some day *_*
