Hi Harv.azad, sorry predictive text error, I meant to say ‘better luck next time’, not bed time.😂🤣👍🎄

Hi Victoria.darr, I don’t think they were okra, but I might have been wrong. 👍🎄😊

Hi Harv.azad, they looked like Kerala which I have cooked. These went brown before I could use them, also the inside seemed hollow.😟. Perhaps I’ll have better luck bedtime. Thanks for your help. 👍🎄🍷

I thought this might be Okra as we bought mini versions from Sainsbury’s last week. Hari has a recipe on this too which is delicious.

Yes, they are good to eat @joncrewgee and @stripeybag. One of the favorite vegetables of Mauritians. A bit similar to courgette/zucchini in taste. Have a try! You won’t be disappointed!!! Of course, taste is very subjective 😊!

Click on link below and you’ll have a recipe with pipengaille and prawns. You can leave out the prawns if you aren’t a prawns’ fan @joncrewjee.

It is a sponge gourd - this type is called a ruffle luffa gourd I think. @stripybag @latif thanks for the info.

Google the word “pipengaille”. You’ll find a lot of information about it on the Internet. This is how we call it in Mauritius. The English translation is sponge gourd @stripeybag. But you should click the word “pipengaille”. Good luck!!!
