Stir Fry Pumpkin with Dried Shrimps

Yummy Bakes | 1:20 PM |
I love to eat pumpkins but doesnt know many ways of preparing it except pumpkin rice.  Lena has shared a very appetising Chinese stir-fry pumpkins with dried shrimps which is indeed very delicious to go with white rice.

Recipe source from:Frozen Wings

Ingredients :
300gms pumpkin, cut into bite size with skin on
3 cloves garlic
3 shallots
20gm dried shrimps, minced
1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp- 1tsp brown sugar, to taste

1. Pour some cooking oil into your wok and fry them till soft on medium high heat.. This will take around 10-15 minutes, you can use your spatula or fork , prick it into the pumpkin to test if the flesh is tender. Remove from wok and run under water to get rid of the excess oil.
2. Leaving 1 tbsp of oil in the wok, put in the dried shrimps, saute them till fragrant and add in the garlic and shallots . Fry them for about 20 seconds, return the pumpkins into your wok and stir fry them. Add in the oyster sauce and brown sugar. Add in a little water if you find them a little dry, cover them with wok cover for about a minute. If you still prefer it a little softer, you can add in more water and taste again.
