Thai Bitter Melon ( Ma Ra Koom )

This Thai melon can be easily recognised from it's gnarled surface, it has a bitter taste and is used to add a bitter note to soups with meat. When cooking with it, scoop out the seeds and pith from the centre.

Many bitter things are promoted for their 'healthy' benefits, and this melon is no different. It's often claimed it cleanses your stomach.
