KhaWelThee Kyaw Chet

Finally, finally I can manage to find the name of the veggie that we (me & my sis) cooked in the evening. Even though we know it's Burmese name, we do not have any idea about it's English or scientific name. In Burmese, we call it KhaWelThee. I faced this problem quite often as my English skill is not proficient enough. Yeah, I knew about it. But, finally, with the help of Burmese-English dictionary + Wiki, I managed to find it's English name. Hope it is correct one.

Ok, nvm, be it khaWelThee or Luffa Acutangula, it is quite delicious. That's the most important part. And here is the method.

1) Heat 1 Tbsp of cooking oil in the pan. Add 2 red onion + 3 cloves of garlic (both are finely chopped) and cook till fragrant ~ about 2 mins.
2) Add in 500 grams of KhaWelThee ( peel off and cut about 1 inch long pieces), 20 grams of dry shrimps, 1 tsp of salt, a pinch of turmeric powder, 1 cup of water and cook for about 5mins or till veggie are cooked.
3) Dish out and ready to serve!
