Easy Angled Luffa Recipe
If you come across to angled luffa in Asian stores, try this angled luffa recipe, one of my favorite Thai vegetable recipes! Stir-fried angled luffa with egg is very simple and easy to make.
Simply, stir fry angled luffa with minced garlic, egg and a bit of oyster sauce and light soy sauce. Serve the dish with steamed jasmine rice. This dish is another healthy-focused menu for everyone but in particular, vegetarians.
Angled luffa, the tubular fruit, known as “Buab” is found in Asian stores. The angled ridges need to be peeled off before slicing into 2-3 cm thick. It can be stir fried or added in soup dishes.
If you are not vegetarians, you may add a bit of minced pork, chicken or even prawns for a mouth-watering dish. Try serving Panang Curry with this dish. Delicious!
