Winter Melon Soup

Big round Winter Melon. Saw Auntie Claire's post on Winter Melon Soup in December 2009. Am now going to attempt to cook Winter Melon Soup .

One Winter Melon, cut and cleaned. Two pieces of roast porkbones, some scallops, some dried oyster, some red dates and some Gei Zhi.

Alamak! put into which pot ah? one is too small and the other is too big.

In the end, Mamarazzi put into a BIG pot and steamed it. Alamak! How come the Winter Melon become "kedut" jor geh? Hmmm....must be Mamarazzi didn't "jaga" the fire properly and steamed too long.

Uh....lucky. The soup is still in the melon. Taste? Not bad la for the 1st attempt.


  1. LMAO.... must crown you Soup Queen la, mamarazzi... now you got me into soup fever liao! LOL...

  2. Wah..big winter melon!! Dun think i can make this soup cos seldom finding such a big melon and worst tak ada such a big pot to fit the melon..hehehhe.

    i guess de soup must be very refreshing.

  3. Good attempt. Actually what I do is I will cut the melon into smaller cubes, add some pork ribs, dates, and chicken feet into a pot of boiled water!! Let it simmer and add salt to taste. Simple. :) Happy cooking. At least, little boy like to drink soup. I still trying hard to get my gal to drink soup. Depends on her mood, she can drink a small bowl of soup.

    Not yet Halloween wor. I got this melon from the Wed pasar malam. Indian selling rm3 only.

  19. Alice

    hahaha...Ni L-lesen punya "chef". The winter melon also can overcooked kakaka

  20. Claire

    not that big la...slightly bigger thanJoshua's head :p. Surprisingly cheap at RM3. Sold by indian man.

    Any soup cook with roast pork bones sure sweet and nice one.

    Sometimes I make Lo Han Gua leong sui put winter melon shredded finely, longan and white fungus. Very nice. No need to put rock sugar, the leong sui already sweet

  21. Dearest Mamarazzi,
    Very creative soup and this is really good for you and your family.
    Good job!

  22. Winter melon kedut....forgot to apply anti wrinkle cream lah! ha ha ha!

  23. Shakira

    Ya..Mamarazzi boil sup nearly everyday coz it's easy and simple. No hassle. Just dump in everything wait an hour and can drink already

  24. Pete

    Next time I go your house and curi your specially formulated Winter Melon Anti Wrinkle cream. :p

  25. My mum used to "tan" this soup in the melon when we were younger. She also did a sweet version of tong sui... put cane sugar and red dates instead. Very yun and yummy :-).

    Nowadays, she just chop everything and put inside the slow cooker.

  26. Boey Joey
