2, 6-inch long bitter melons
1 tablespoon salt, for washing out
Large pinch turmeric
3 tablespoons oil
1 small onion
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3 medium tomatoes
2 tablespoons shrimp powder
Fish sauce to taste
Prepare melon: scrape off skin and blisters lightly, just enough to remove raised parts. Cut in thin diagonal slices and then strips. Fruit should be tender enough not to have hard seeds and to have insides that can be used.
Wash cut slices. Now knead them hard with salt to get out excess bitterness. Wash off all this salt and juice. Wash in clear water and drain. Rub with turmeric.
Heat oil. Slice onion and fry till clear. Add chili and fry. Slice tomatoes finely and fry together. When pulp begins to soften, add melon strips and stir well. Cover and cook till fairly dry but not discolored.
Add shrimp powder. Stir well and cook 2 to 3 minutes. If salt is needed now, add fish sauce to taste and cook till it is absorbed. This is a dry dish.
