Asian Bitter Melon Stir Fry

 

One thing I love about Asian Food is their simple yet tasty vegetarian prepearations.

Granted, the vegetarian dishes may have added non veg items incorporated like dried shrimp, anchovies or egg to name a few.  The stir frys are especially awesome! Asian Bitter Melon Stir Fry is one such dish. The dish is so tasty! You need to use the larger variety of Bitter melons- the smoother, brighter green jumbo ones.
