The Green Mile (6)

The Green Mile (6)

Coffey on the Mile

Cold Mountain Penitentiary has seen its share of men drawing their last breaths, with many of them claiming to be innocent until the very end. In this final chapter of the six-part novel, we learn both John Coffey’s fate and the terrible truth Paul Edgecombe discovers about him. The story also brings us farther into the present as Paul recounts the events of his life after Cold Mountain—and the lives of all he encountered there. The gentle giant with healing hands. The little mouse that softened a murderer’s heart. The corrupt man capable of more evil than any of those he guarded. And all the wonderful and horrible men and moments in that place of ultimate retribution, the well-worn stretch of linoleum they called the Green Mile.

Prison Warden Hal Moores isn’t just Paul Edgecombe’s boss—Hal and his wife Melinda are also friends with Paul and his wife Janice. When Paul learns that Melinda has a brain tumor, he realizes that John Coffey can use his astonishing gift to heal her. Though Paul understands that the warden would never allow John to leave the prison, and Melinda can’t enter it, he also knows that John is Melinda’s only hope for survival. And so Paul and other E Block guards devise a dangerous plan that risks their jobs—not something to take lightly in 1932—as well as their lives. They decide to spirit John away into the night and beyond the confines of the Green Mile.

Time has run out for one of the inmates at Cold Mountain penitentiary. Eduard Delacroix is set to make his way into the lap of Old Sparky. But first he must say good-bye—to the guards, to his fellow inmates, and to a strange creature that forever changed his life. Little does he know of the terrible fate that awaits him, and of a devilish plan of revenge. Though no execution can ever be routine, it can follow procedures put in place to minimize pain and avoid a ghastly end. But those procedures are only as good as the men carrying them out. Unfortunately for Delacroix, one of those men is Percy Wetmore. And he’s determined to hear Delacroix’s screams of agony echoing along the Green Mile.

Eduard Delacroix has grown quite attached to Mr. Jingles. But one guard, Percy Wetmore, despises Mr. Jingles… and anything that might bring happiness to an inmate. Not all guards can be like Paul. He’s a man who doesn’t like to see anyone suffer and has dedicated his career to making sure that the condemned men in his charge spend their last days with peace and dignity. Paul is also suffering. He has a painful bladder infection that just won’t let up. It’s because of this ailment that he learns that John Coffey has the ability to heal with his touch. It’s a wondrous revelation at a time when yet another man must take his final trip on the Green Mile.

Paul Edgecombe’s story continues with the addition of two characters, one a new prisoner awaiting his own date with “Old Sparky,” Cold Mountain’s electric chair. He’s William “Wild Bill” Wharton, a killer with an aim to cause as much trouble as he can before his execution date. The other newcomer is a mouse. Called Steamboat Willy by the guards who first noticed him, he’s later renamed Mr. Jingles by Eduard Delacroix, another of the death row inmates who eventually takes in the mouse and makes him his pet—a bit of cold comfort for a man condemned to walk the Green Mile.

Welcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary, home to the Depression-worn men of E Block. Convicted killers all, each awaits his turn to walk the Green Mile—the prison’s death row. This is the story, told by former guard Paul Edgecombe, of what happened there in 1932 when an unusual inmate named John Coffey arrives. Condemned for a crime terrifying in its violence and shocking in its depravity, he has the body of a giant and the mind of a child. But there’s something about Coffey that makes Paul question if this man could have committed that crime. He is a rare, gentle spirit along the Green Mile.

I LOVE Bitter Melon

I never thought I’d find myself saying this, but I absolutely love bitter melon. When I was a kid, I avoided it like the plague, not understanding why my parents would eat something that literally had “bitter” in its name.

But now that we regularly grow bitter melon in our garden every year, I’ve grown to love its bitter flavor, which contrasts so beautifully with rich ingredients like (in this case) scrambled eggs, sliced beef, and umami-packed black beans.

My partner Justin and I look forward to seeing bitter melons overflowing in Chinese markets this time of year, and especially my mom’s garden bitter melon each summer.

Beef with Bitter Melon is a slightly more involved recipe, but this one couldn’t be much simpler. It’s basically scrambled eggs!

Chinese Stir-fried Bitter Melon with Eggs

Simply scrape out the bitter gourds, slice them, and give them a quick blanch in your wok. Drain them, reheat your wok, and scramble some eggs. Then mix it all together with a few seasonings, and you’re done!

If you’ve never prepared bitter melon before, don’t worry. I’ll show you how to do it with step-by-step photos in this post.

How to use bitter melon in cooking.

Bitter Melon: How To Use It For Diabetes, Blood Sugar Balance, In Cooking & More

Bitter melon can be used in a number of ways. If it is taken for medicinal purposes, it is usually available as a capsule or juice. The supplements are highly concentrated extracts of the seeds. They are commercially available and have few side effects, though an exception is that people with low blood sugar should be cautious when taking bitter melon supplements, as there could be adverse effects (it is, after all, mimicking insulin in your body, as noted above!). I’d recommend discussing this with your dietitian or doctor to make sure there are no contraindications.

When cooking with bitter melon, the healing effects tend to be less potent, as some of the nutrients are denatured during the cooking process, though there are still health benefits to be reaped. Pachad, a South Indian creamy cucumber yogurt sauce that contains bitter melon, is considered a medicinal dish for diabetes. The fruit is popular in Indian cuisine: In North India, it’s used in curries and is often served pickled. In South India, it is eaten fried with other vegetables, served with nuts, or in soups.

In Chinese cuisine, the fruit is valued for its bitter taste and is usually fried with meat. Bitter melon is a popular ingredient in Okinawan (one of the long-lived Blue Zones) dishes. The fruit is also widely used in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Trinidad, and Tobago or Mauritius. In all these cultures, bitter melon is valued for its special taste and healing properties.

9 thoughts on “ Cocktail Green Peas Samosa ”

I recently discovered your Youtube channel and your website. One of your first recipes that I tried was your Tadka Urad Dal which I have made several times since. It is a very fine rendition and it was from this recipe that I surmised that you must come from a line of cooks with extraordinary culinary talent. My husband and I both have had a hankering for samosas, lately, and when you mention in your video that your samosa recipe was your mother’s, it confirmed my hunch. I will go to the market tomorrow to get green peas – I can’t wait to taste your family recipe for samosas! My mother passed away several years ago and I often make her recipes in her remembrance and I feel her around me as I prepare them and enjoy them with my husband and sons. Thank you so much for sharing these gems. Yours sincerely from Savannah, Georgia, – Margaret

Margaret, Thanks I appreciate

Such an amazing and precise recipe. I was able to follow perfectly and they came out so great..4 people finished the samosas made for 6. Thanks for all the perfect measures. ..hard to give measures for Indian cooking but you do it perfectly.

Hi Manjula from sunny Tucson Az. I made this recipe today. Wow these are super yummy! Since I am new to cooking Indian food, I’m not good at seasoning things. But I like to think I am good at picking recipes to try. And surely, your recipes turn our great every time. Your cooking is truly impressive. Thanks so much, to you and your mom, for these great recipes.

Bitter melon health benefits

Bitter melon has been studied for several decades because of its use as a food product and several traditional medical uses. Various extracts of bitter melon are studied for biological activities, including anti-oxidant 17) , anti-diabetic 18) , anti-cancer 19) , anti-inflammatory 20) , anti-bacterial 21) , antifungal 22) , anti-viral 23) , anti-HIV 24) , anti-helminthic 25) , anti-mycobacterial 26) , hypotensive 27) , anti-obesity 28) , immunomodulatory 29) , anti-hyperlipidemic 30) , hepatoprotective 31) , and neuropro-tective 32) activities. Several chemical constituents such as cucurbitane type triterpenoids, cucurbitane type glycosides, triterpene saponins, phenolic, and flavonoid compounds, and some protein fractions have been isolated from bitter melon 33) .

The effectiveness ratings for bitter melon (Momordica charantia) are as follows:

Insufficient evidence to rate effectiveness for:

  • Diabetes. Research results so far are conflicting and inconclusive. Some studies show that bitter melon fruit, fruit juice, or extract improves glucose tolerance, reduces blood sugar levels, and lowers HbA1c (a measure of blood sugar control over time) in people with type 2 diabetes. However, these studies have some flaws. Other research has not been positive.
  • Psoriasis.
  • Stomach and intestinal disorders.
  • Kidney stones.
  • Liver disease.
  • Skin abscesses and wounds.
  • Other conditions.

Clinical studies reported mostly lack appropriate study design and are inconclusive. More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of bitter melon for these uses.

Bitter melon and diabetes

The public have used different parts of bitter melon (Momordica charantia) including the leaves, the stem and mainly the green fruits or seeds to treat diabetes. Figure 2 shows the chemical structures of momocharin (1) and momordicin (2) which is believed to possess insulin-like chemical structure and properties. People eat the fruit raw, boil or cook the different parts or drink the pulp of the fruit as a juice. Over the years several scientists have tried to isolate the various active ingredient of bitter melon for commercial purpose.

Over the past 50 years, both basic and clinical studies have been done to determine the effect of bitter melon on the management of diabetes mellitus. Table 2 shows the effect of oral administration of bitter melon on human type 2 diabetes mellitus. They were administered with a hot water extract, concoction, the fruit, the fruit juice or the seeds 34) . Of the five studies presented in Table 2, only two studies show no effect on type 2 diabetes mellitus patient 35) , 36) . However, overall, it remains controversial whether bitter melon has proven benefits in lowering blood sugar among pre-diabetics or aids in slowing the progression to diabetes 37) . While the evidence to date, when examined as a whole, is suggestive of a possible beneficial effect, future clinical studies that meet rigorous methodological standards are warranted before attempts to establish clinical recommendations regarding the use of bitter melon for pre-diabetics and diabetics.
