GINISANG AMPALAYA NA MAY ITLOG (sauteed bittermelon with egg)

Bitter melon or bitter gourd known as Ampalaya in tagalog to Filipinos is a natural remedy for lowering blood sugar (antidiabetic effect). According to Wikipedia: "Like most bitter-tasting foods, bitter melon is claimed to stimulate digestion, and thus help treat dyspepsia and constipation."  This is also good for slim diet.  
Some people cooked the ampalaya a bitterless taste while others tastes bitter like me so what I do to get rid of bitter taste is to prepare a big bowl with lukewarm water and a teaspoon of salt mixture then soak for at least 5 minutes then squeeze it using my two hands to drip the liquid from the ampalaya before cooking. I remember the teacher assigned cooking in the canteen where I worked before, she's good in cooking the Ginisang Ampalaya its not taste bitter. I could eat a lot even without the rice and also her beef steak and chopsuey are terrific.
