Before coming to Thailand, I thought of pumpkin mostly as a sweet food used in desserts like pumpkin pie. While the pumpkin is used in some Thai desserts, I really enjoy it as a dish.

This is a plate of fuktong sai kai, stir fried pumpkin with egg mixed in and it goes great with rice!

    mmmm, now I’m going to show my wife this tomorrow, I fancy some and I’m sure my daughter will too. Like you I have tried pumpkin in sweet sauce etc but never like this. We live in Phuket and my wife is Thai, surprised she has never made it before!
