I used chicken parts cos I only cooked this for dinner the other day with no accompanying dishes. Chicken parts can be substituted with sliced chicken fillets.
2 chicken drumsticks and 2 chicken wings (cut into small chunks)
Cut one medium size bittergourd into sticks as shown above after scraping out all the seeds in the core. Blanche them in boiling water for 2 minutes and drained (this is done to take away some of its bitterness).
Chop some garlic, 2 Tbsp tauchu paste (fermented soya beans), plop them into hot oil in a wok and saute for 1 minute and add chicken. Stir till chicken is slightly brown on the outside and add a drizzle of dark soya sauce and light soya sauce. Stir some more and add a little hot water before pouring in the pre-cooked bittergourd. Simmer for 15 minutes with lid on. Add salt to taste.
