It’s cooking season this whole year isn’t it?

Well, just the other week while trying to figure out what I want to do with the 1/4 piece of pumpkin in the fridge, I figured why don’t I come up with a recipe myself this time instead of hunting the web looking for what others have done. Growing up, mom never really featured pumpkin in the dining table much, so I had to actually come up with something somewhat novel, and I did – here I present to you – pumpkin omelette recipe, created by yours truly.

The dish is fairly easy to create, requiring simple ingredients and takes about 15 minutes or so to prepare and cook. Take a look at the video embedded below.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 small pumpkin, cut into chunks
  • 3 eggs, beat em up
  • a bunch of cilantro, remove stems
  • 4-5 bulb of garlic, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon cooking oil

Cooking Instructions:

  • cut pumpkin into bite size and steam them for 10 minutes
  • once done, heat up frying pan with cooking oil
  • fry garlic until fragrant, then add the steamed pumpkin
  • next add egg, and cilantro
  • add some salt & pepper if you wish
  • fry till egg is about 80% cooked through, remove and serve

The result is a sweet and savory dish that turned out very delicious. Not sure if anyone else make it this way but do feel free to try it! I reckon you’ll be surprised 🙂

Have you ever heard about this term – “the curse of knowledge”?

The curse of knowledge is a cognitive bias that occurs when an individual, communicating with other individuals, unknowingly assumes that the others have the background to understand (wikipedia)

It is something I am always aware and try not to fall into when building this website, so for those of you who thinks this silly little recipe is too simple, well, there maybe others who could benefit from this.

So, I present you the very first dish I ever attempted as a kid, back when I was still in primary school – the Chinese style Omelette.

chinese style onion omelette

Ingredients:

  • two eggs
  • 2 red onions (small size), or 1 big ones, sliced
  • cooking oil
  • salt, pepper to taste

Instructions:

  • heat up frying pan with cooking oil (1 tablespoon)
  • throw in and cook onion till they’re soft, add a pinch of salt too
  • add in egg that’s pre-scrambled in a bowl, add some white pepper if desired
  • flip when one side is cooked
  • ready to serve!

I loved this dish so much as a kid, mom would make it probably almost weekly, and it goes very well especially with porridge as well, probably why this was the first dish I ever attempted as a kid (was a failure cos I put onion and egg the same time).

Try it yourself!
