炒金瓜 Stir-fried Pumpkin

Cooking of pumpkin is something tricky. 

First, the pumpkin need to be cut into uniform size.   Uneven sizes may result in uneven cooking.
Secondly, the pumpkin must not be overcooked.  Overcooked pumpkin tends to be softened and pulpy.  It should be just nicely cooked.  Soft, yet still retain the chunkiness.
Third, pumpkin itself is a sweet fruit.  Turning a sweet fruit into a savory dish is not as simple as adding salt.  I don’t know, but sometimes it taste more like a dessert.

Good luck
