Stir-fied Cute'cumber

This is a mini cucumber, a.k.a. cute’cumber, only about 5cm long x 1.5cm diameter.  I get it from the backyard of Sarikei home.  Nobody seems to know the origin of this Cucumis, be it indigenous or introduced.  But, one thing for sure, its edible.

First, I sliced them longitunally,  then stir-fried with minced garlic and anchovies.  Flavoured with a little bit of oyster sauce.  It 's crunchy, taste almost similar to normal cucumber.   I think it may be suitable as an ingredient for salad too.
