Bacon Musk Melon Salad

My sister and I have been holed up in my hostel room for more than a month now. Both passionate foodies and cooks, we began suffering from kitchen withdrawal around the second week. Symptoms include loitering longingly at supermarkets, ranting incoherently about stoves, pots and pans and spices and vacant stares punctuated with sighs of utter misery. So imagine how deliriously overjoyed we were when a friend invited us over to cook in his kitchen. In Godrej Nature’s Basket, the fresh and fragrant musk melon helped me to decide on this salad.

(Serves 6)
1 packet of Keels Bacon, cook in microwave for 2 mins
100g Flat green beans, string and cut into half
1 Packet of Trikaya Pok Choy, cut into bite sized squares
1 medium sized Musk Melon, cut into bite sized squares
1 Red Bell Pepper, Cut into bite sized squares
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, Cut into bite sized squares
2 White Onions, quartered
1tbsp Roasted Sesame Oil
½ Cup of Port wine
In a non stick wok, add roasted sesame oil, add bell peppers, onions, pak choy and green beans. Stir fry for 2 mins on high flame, add bacon and port wine. Stir fry for 3 mins. Add musk melon, toss, garnish with boiled egg, halved and serve.
