Food Trip Friday: Pumpkin in Coconut Milk

I’m from Bicol, Philippines where not a day goes by without at least one viand cooked with coconut milk. That we like ‘ginataan‘ is an understatement..Thankfully, all things I need to cook my ginataan is readily available here in Phnom Penh.

Here’s one I made a few weeks ago.. Pumpkin, chili leaves, crab and dried fish cooked in creamy coconut milk..

    Now, this post of yours makes me drool . This is one of my most favorite Filipino foods. In Bisaya, we call it ginataang kalabasa.
    But instead of fish, we have beef.
