Stir Fry Pumpkin With Black Fungus

I prefer pumpkin that is not too sweet especially the taiwanese and japanese type. I  bought one taiwanese pumpkin to try out and too my surprise it tasted as good as the japanese one :)  I asked my assistant chef ( Wild Boar ) to cut and diced them into cubes. He prepared the rest for me too, soaked the  black fungus and cut into smaller pieces and I taught him to debone the chicken leg and dice them into cubes.  I taught him for free :p   Well, I am thankful that he is willing to help out so that we could have home cooked food more often.  This simple stir fry is good enough for a simple dinner at home :) Tasty and delicious . Slurrrp !  Read on for the recipe :)

Stir Fry Pumpkin With Black Fungus


2 cups of diced pumpkin cubes - 1/2" X 1/2 cubes
1 big piece of black fungus - soaked and cut into strips
1 chicken leg- remove skin, debone and cut into cubes
2 cloves of garlic - crushed and chopped fine
1 tbsp of canola oil

1/2 tbsp of oyster sauce
