1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten
1 bitter melon, seeded and cut into long thick strips

1 Tablespoon fermented black beans
4 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
4 slices ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 small chili pepper, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon sugar

3. Add black beans, garlic, ginger, chili pepper, and the sugar and stir-fry until fragrant. Sprinkle in the rice wine, half cup of boiling water, and the deep-fried eggs and cook for five minutes, then serve.
