Stir-fried bitter gourd with minced chicken

I recently bought a new recipe book by Primarasa called Tumis Sayuran 15 Menit. The recipes in this book is quite easy and suitable for an amateur cook like me, plus it’s amazingly quick to cook. So, today I tried this bitter gourd recipe for lunch. I love bitter gourd and I usually made an omelette out of it. The result is delicious and SC loved it, so I think I’m going to try some other recipes & post the results here (when I’m not too lazy/sleepy to write after cooking & eating).
