Notes

In general, dark green bitter gourd is more bitter and light green is less bitter. 
Salted eggs are easily available in most Chinese sundry shops.
You can also blanch the sliced bitter gourd in salted hot water to remove the bitter taste.
You can also used mashed raw salted egg yolk instead of cooked egg yolk. Cooked salted egg yolk will make the smoother sauce and uncooked salted egg yolk will give some bits to bite.
