    Question Bakit mapait kung magluto ako ng Ampalaya?

    I live in a dormitory of five ladies. Tuwing matataon sa na ako ang magluluto, iniiwasan kung may ampalaya ang lulutuin ko. Mapait kasi akong magluto. Hindi naman kung sila. Parehas lang naman ang pamamaraan namin. Lagi nila akong niloloko na may balat dawa ako sa **** kaya ganun.

    Bakit kaya?

    When cooking ampalaya try to scrape off the thin skin but not the flesh. Apparently the bitterness is caused by this skin. When you get rid of the seeds include this part as well.

    Sabi nila, kapag mapait ka daw magluto ng ampalaya...

    Masungit ka raw kasi o masama loob mo magluto.

    Sabi lang nila.

    mapait naman talaga ang amplaya, di ba? ampalaya nga, eh!

    pero mas gusto nga yung mapait na mapait na ampalaya, yung native na ampalaya na maliliit at round, sarap sa pinakbet ng ganyang ampalaya! di ko kursunada pag yung mahahaba na malalaking ampalaya na di gaanong mapait. pero OK na kasamang igisa sa itlog....

    Pag nagluluto kami ng ampalaya, binababad muna namin sa tubig. Ewan ko lang kung pampaalis ng pait yung ginagawa nila na yun. Pero sarap nga ng ampalaya na mapait e. Come to think of it, I like mapait things.. ampalaya, beer, dark chocolate..

    Ewan ko, pero minsang na ring nasabi niyan ng Nanay ko noon. Di naman kasi ako nagluluto sa amin noon eh.

    Masungit nga ako.

    Mapait nga ang ampalaya, alam ko yan. Pero ang luto ko, mapait talaga *** as in mapait na mapait.

    Pero kapag mga ka-dorm ko naman ang magluto, hindi *** masyadong mapait. Tinitignan ko nga ang procedure nila eh at parehas lang naman kami.

    Kainis.....

    Scrape the skin off very well then immerse the cut ampalaya in salted water before cooking.

    Post another superstitious belief...

    Sabi nila, dapat wag mag-iingay kapag nagluluto ng ampalaya. Kung hindi, magiging mapait sya pag naluto na. Koneksyon? ewan! hehehe yun ang sabi eh.

    When adding amplaya to a dish, do not mix the dish for about two to three minutes. If possible, try also not to cover the dish upon adding ampalaya.

    This method minimizes the bitter taste of amplaya in the dish. In effect you allow the bitter flavor to mix with the rest of the flavor of the dish gradually. By mixing the dish upon adding ampalaya, you sort of induce the bitter flavor to abruptly mix with the rest of the flavors. The result is that the flavor is not mixed at all, and the bitter taste remains.

    The same technique can be tried when cooking adobo. Don't mix the adobo upon adding the vinegar to minimize the sour flavor.

    Well, I would think that some nutrients washed off would still be better than having all the nutrients retained but no one would touch it, di ba? The insides of an ampalaya still contain nutrients.

    Post Ganito kasi yon...

    ... pag naglu2to ka ng ampalaya, huwag mong haluin ng haluin. Para kasing dahon ng gabi yan eh, pag hinalo mo ng hinalo, kumakati.

    Well, narinig ko na rin yan... totoo kaya. Pero natatakot akong subukan baka mapulaan na naman ako ng mga boardmate ko kapag mapait na naman.

    hiwain mo ng manipis yung amplaya...about 2 mm, then lamasin mo muna sa asin.. tapos hugasan mo ng tubig.. make sure na mawawala yung asin.. kundi super alat naman... then gisa mo na..lagyan mo egg, ha...beat mo muna..

    I don't know if my friend was kidding me or not, but her mom told her to be in a nice, happy mood when cooking ampalaya. When she cooks it kase she's cross sometimes, that's why it's bitter. When her mom cooks it, it's not that bad! I was just laughing so much when she told me!

    kapag nagluluto ako ng ginisang ampalaya, binubudburan ko muna ng asin yung hiwang amplalaya tapos pipigain ko para lumabas yung katas. that way, nababawasan yung pagkapait.
