This dish was randomly cooked when my friends and I are talking at the kitchen then its almost lunch and somebody said "what's for lunch?" we looked around and saw a pack of mongo and we all said "mongo!" My friend said there is only shrimps and bitter melon in the refrigerator, we said its fine, we can have a delicious mongo with just ampalaya. Here is the recipe for it, it is nice and yummy.
2 cups monggo
1/4 kilo shrimps
1 piece bitter melon (ampalaya) [sliced]
2 cloves garlic
1. In a pot boil the monggo until it is soft, then set aside (You can use pressure cooker for faster cooking)
2. In a pan saute the garlic, then add the shrimps and salt simmer for few minutes.
3. Add the cooked monggo, simmer for few minutes
4.Then add the ampalaya, simmer for 2 minutes then serve.
