Stir-Fried Pumpkin with Dried Shrimps

July 23, 2010

I like pumpkin. I miss the one which Mommy cooks with dried shrimp. It’s simple, delicious and healthy. It’s my first attempt and it tastes exactly the same as Mom’s *grins*


  • 1/4 of a pumpkin (peeled, seeded and cut into pieces)
  • a small handful of dried shrimp (washed and chopped finely)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (chopped finely)
  • a pinch of salt
  • sugar to taste
  • some oil for stir-fry
  • some water


  1. Heat wok with some cooking oil.
  2. Add in chopped garlic. Fry until golden in colour then add in dried shrimp.
  3. Stir-fry dried shrimp until fragrant.
  4. Add in pumpkin, stir-fry for a while.
  5. Add in water just nice to cover the pumpkin. Let it boil for a while.
  6. Add in a little bit of sugar and a pinch of salt to taste.
  7. Cook until pumpkin is tender.
  8. Serve it hot.

Happy cooking!
