I am wondering what kind of fruit or vegetable is on picture nr.3 ( "green stuff").

The fruit there is called "bitter gourd"— I had it in Nepal and absolutely loved it. Bitter gourd is indeed bitter, but almost zucchini-like in flavour. I was thrilled to see we have it in Turkey, though it is pricey and mostly used medicinally here.

Thank you, I googled it up and found this:

Ooh that sounds good!
I'll have to try making it— I bought one and I have no idea what to do with it. I keep staring at it. The students in Nepal fried them, so I was thinking of doing that— but if I can find a mango...

Thank you for sharing!
