With surplus of homegrown spring onions, I tend to add spring onions to the dishes I cooked :p This is a hot and spicy pumpkin stir fry dish I cooked for dinner. Sometimes I do run out of ideas what to do with the pumpkin I bought from the supermart. My bad habit of always "Stock up first and think later " hahaha Anyway, back to this delicious spicy hot dish...it is easy to whip up and darn delicious okay ,though it may look simple but the taste is marvelous...every mouthful is addictive ! Added some dried shrimp and curry powder for extra oomph to the dish. A great combination of flavor....hot ( from the bird eye's chillies, spicy from the curry powder ), sweet ( from the pumpkin ) and a faint scent of fishy-ness from the dried shrimp....hahaha tell me , can you imagine the taste of this dish ? Yea, it is a bomb!
my homegrown spring onions will now graces most of the dishes
I am going to cook
love the combination of flavors in this dish.....
the flavor burst and explode in the mouth !
