Out of th blue, my dad bought a big pumpkin in the wet market. He loves to buy loads of things from wet market. I agree in point like it is fresh from the field and can be much cheaper but hey, when n how will we finish them off. It wont be fresh again if it restored in the fridge for several days (with no proper wrapping).
Its size was about 3 -4 times the common pumpkin around here. Well, but tat's not it. A day before I was wondering where could I buy a pumpkin since I have bought this classical soup recipe! And I never tried a pumpkin soup ever, before! And there it was! Tada!!!
So the next day we had 3 dishes of pumpkin: the chinese with chicken, mine (western soup), and the javanese kolak desert!
My first attempt was pretty successful i guess, the pumpkin was so sweet! Put some milk to tender the taste, which was not in the recipe.
