WHat a great way to make bitter melon. I've only had it chinese style. Lovely!

Sabby-Another winner! Unfortunately we cannot find bitter melon in our market here, in S, Florida, and we don't have an exotic produce market, other than Latina, or Asian produce market. I love the beautiful photo, and the recipe of it...perhaps I can make it with regular melon?

Foodfunfreak said...

Sure Elisabeth. You can give a try with regular melons and let me know how they came out :)
