Parwal stir fry - Pointed Gourd stir fry - Simple side for roti, rice

This vegetable is totally new. I have ordered this online thinking it is Ivy gourd (by mistake not looking at it properly) when it arrive I realized it is different as it is slightly bigger than ivy gourd then I searched in the net to find out what is it and what we can do with it.
