Bottle gourd noddle stir fry

This is a blog post on bottle gourd and noodle stir fry. It is call bottle gourd as it looks like a bottle. Also known as calabash, long melon, lauki or doodhi. A member of gourd is grown on the vine in warmer climates. It is also cultivated as containers say wiki.

Young bottle gourd has got many culinary uses in many different types of cuisines. one can buy it from Asian grocers. In this recipe I use glass noodles to bulk the dish up and some dried prawns and red chillies to flavour it. It’s skin might need peeling as it gets a bit tough after cooking. I didn’t as it meant even much less to eat.
