Sinqua-try a new vegetable dish

Sinqua better known as silk gourd or Luffa acutangula. That's right, the same thing you scrub your body with. When young they are edible and native to SE Asia. A member of the Curcubit (cucumber) family. Adds texture and bitterness to the dish, although not much as the Indian bittermelon I tried recently.

Just a quick stir fry with some bacon, onion, garlic, sinqua, chilies, shao hsing wine and a squeeze of lime. Another acquired taste, not sure if I'll try this again. Depends on the recipe
