  • wok or frying pan


  • 1 medium loofah
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 medium egg
  • 90 grams diced pancetta
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp low salt soy sauce


Prepare and chop the ingredients

  • Like cooking all stir-fries prepare and chop the ingredients ahead of cooking. Although if you are quick or cook the first ingredients on low heat you might just get away by preparing the rest of the ingredients while cooking.
    Peel and chop the onion and garlic. Peel and dice the loofah.

Cook the stir fry

  • In a wok or frying pan heat up 1 tablespoon of cooking oil. Fry the egg like a scrabble egg as you want to cook the egg separately to prevent it going mushy. Take it off the pan.
    Heat up the rest of the oil. Fry the chop onion after 1-2 minutes once it begins to soften add the garlic. Fry it on medium heat as you don't want to burn the onion and garlic. then add the pancetta till the oil in the pancetta begins to sizzle add the diced loofah. Cook till the loofah begins to soften add the seasoning and finally the egg.
