Hello!! i am back after a while, as i have started on the working schedule, i have less time to keep up the posting, please forgive me on this. We found this nice bitter melon for our grocery last week, instead of making the soup, i have decided to make it into different taste. In Malaysia there are many Yong Tau Foo food shop that stuffed the mince pork into the vegetable such as lady fingers, chilies, egg plant and tofu, of course bitter melon is one of the best option. So it is very simple, take me 30 minutes to get it done, interested to try? just follow me!
