Baiyou Sigua is a pretty popular home dish in Sichuan. The sponge gourd, also called towel gourd, is either sliced thinly as done in the recipe or cut into chunks for better finished looking. The gourd is stir-fried in its own juice and its own original flavor. It can be prepared in a few minutes and is very healthy. The natural light sweet flavor is even loved by most young kids who do not like vegetables at all.
