For dinner tonight I'm going to make an Asian dish (don't know whether to call it Chinese or Thai or.....) using the sin qwa I bought yesterday.
Green curry paste (Mae Ploy brand) with other seasonings added and the sin qwa roll-cut and added. I"m leaving out the pea eggplant because I don't have them.

(There are a gazillion different spellings of sin qwa.)
Here is a pic of the gourd/squash thingy--- you pare down the ridges first unless it's a very young item, which it never seems to be in the stores.
