Cut the bitter gourd into 4 pieces, remove the seeds from the inside and cut into small pieces 1 cm. thick.

Roughly pound 50 grams of garlic, pepper seeds and coriander root in a mortar, then scoop into a bowl. Set aside.
Prepare a big boiling pot with low heat, add brown sugar and simmer until the brown sugar dissolves. Then add the pounded garlic, pepper and coriander and simmer until the ingredients turn dark brown.
Add 1 liter of chicken rib broth, stir well.
When the broth boils, add chicken drumsticks to the pot and boil for 10 minutes.
Add 5 liters of chicken rib broth and then the prepared boiled bitter gourd. (At this stage, do not stir as this will make the chicken and bitter gourd become mushy and unappetizing)
Cover the big pot, lower the heat and continue to boil for 45 minutes, regularly checking the pot. If there are scum, spoon out to keep the broth clear. Then set aside.
When finished, remove the chicken and bitter gourd from the broth and set aside.
