The Ginisang Ampalaya with Giniling Recipe is a delicious and nutritious dish. Ampalaya is known for bitter taste, but when prepared properly, it can be tasty.


Squeeze the ampalaya slices with the following:



  1. Wash the ampalaya, then use a knife to trim the ends. Make a lengthwise cut, then remove the seeds using a spoon.

  2. Slice the ampalaya into 1/8-inch-thick pieces and put them in a large bowl. Add salt and water, stir, and leave for 5 minutes, then squeeze the ampalaya in a cheesecloth until all the liquid drops. Set it aside.

  3. Prepare the spices for the recipe based on the required cutting.


  1. Heat cooking oil in a pan over medium heat. Saute the garlic until fragrant, then add the onion and tomato and keep sauteing until soft.

  2. Push the spices to the other side of the pan. Then add the ground pork and cook for 5 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink. Then mix all together until combined.

  3. Add the ampalaya and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or more, or until softened. Season with fish sauce and oyster sauce, then add salt and freshly ground pepper for taste. Stir.

  4. Add the beaten eggs, allow the eggs to harden a bit, and start mixing them until well combined.

  5. Add a small amount of water, then bring the liquid to a soft boil for a minute. Taste it and adjust as necessary.

  6. Turn off the heat and transfer the ampalaya to a serving dish. Serve warm and enjoy.
