So here is it. It costs me only 71 sen from Tesco. That is like 10 pence? The name is English Gourd or Chinese call it Buddha’s palm because it looks like clasped palms. But the one Anasalwa has is CHAYOTE SQUASH.
A boring looking gourd the size of a huge guava fruit.
I sliced them into thin slices along with some carrots. Cut the gourd into half, remove the single seed.
Stir fry some dried shrimps and garlic. Add in vege and some water. Add seasoning.
Alternatively, you can cut them into match-sticks and add some mung bean vermicelli. (Cantonese call this dish ‘tai yee ma kah lui’ (eldest auntie wed off her daughter) It is almost similar to hairy gourd but I prefer this gourd because it has only one single seed inside.
The gourd is firm and taste sweet. I have no other idea how to cook it except stir fry. If anyone has better idea, do share please.
