    HUH!!! What is that?!:))

    It’s what Sailu and Krithika said, Asha 😉 I have also since learned a few other names for this cucumber. Will have to put them all in the post when I cook it 🙂

    Hi Coffee — it’s dosakai/vellarika. It *looks* like a squash doesn’t it? 🙂

    If it indeed a cucumber, I have seen smaller ones but never this big, I shave of the skin, sprinkle sugar on top, yum or juice it add sugar tastes wonderful. I have never made curry out of this vegetable/fruit!

    I still haven’t decided what to make with it, ISG. But I’ll have to make up my mind tomorrow — before it is overripe 🙂 Sugar on cucumber sounds great!

    Is that a winter melon or an old cucumber, I’m not sure. If its a melon, my mom usually scoop the meat out, fill the center with chinese virginia ham, seafoods and veges, and chicken broth and steamed to a perfection. If that’s an old cucumber, I usually diced it up and cook with pork rib soup. Oh yummy 🙂 Can’t wait what u gonna do, cheers !:)

    Sounds like your mom is a great cook too, mw –both ideas sound delicious! Will cook this one up very soon 🙂
