This is one famous dish at a Chinese Restaurant down town called Overseas. That was where I first tasted it. I love it ever since and whenever there is nice ridged gourd in the market, I will ask my Mum to cook this dish.

Matured fruit section of the gourd can be used as a bath or kitchen sponge after being processed. My girfriend gave me a set of bath goodies last Christmas and there is this ridged gourd bath sponge in it. Gives me a nice scrub and I like it. Oh and it’s juice is believed to be a natural remedy for jaundice.
