Angle Gourd

Angle Gourd ('Jiao3 Gua1') is so common in the supermarket. And cheap. Problem is, its always sold in a pair (and yet only cost SGD$1 plus). The skin looks very thick but its very easy to scrap off using a vegetable peeler. It has such a natural sweetness that i will be surprised by its taste each time i cook it. 

I used one to stir fry with dried scrimps, dong fen, black fungus and prawns.
The angle gourd is sliced around 1 cm thick and 4-5 cm long.
My second dish using angle gourd - stir fry with minced meat and egg.
Angle gourd is sliced in thicker chunks.
