👻Halloween Pumpkin Stew🎃

For the other parts of the world, the weather is turning colder as we move towards the end of the year.

However, Singapore's pretty much the same throughout😂

But!! Nothing's gonna stop us from sharing this amazing, rich pumpkin stew with you!!

Imagine after a long day of work, you return home to this warm creamy pot of goodness... Pair it with some crispy on the outside, soft on the inside baguette and a few flutes of white wine...🥂

The perfect way to wind down!

Ingredients (for about 4 people)

1/2 Carrot

1/3 Broccoli

Drizzle of vegetable oil

600ml Water

300ml Milk

1. Cut meat into bite sized chunks.

2. Remove pumpkin skin and cut into bite sized chunks.

3. Place it in a microwave safe bowl and cover with microwave safe plastic wrap. Cook at 600w for about 5 mins. (Alternative is to steam the pumpkins till tender.)

6. Heat up BRUNO compact hotplate on [HI] with the ceramic pot (steamboat/nabe pot) on.

8.Add water and simmer until the carrot is cooked. Add in mashed pumpkin and mix.

9. Add milk and let the stew come to a boil. Turn heat to [LOW].

10. Stir in white stew roux and add in the pumpkin cubes and broccoli.

11. <Toppings> Cut carrots into slices and boil it. Then cut out shapes. Have thinly sliced pumpkin as toppings as well. Cut fish cake into ghost shapes and decorate with nori sheet. (You can substitute the fishcake with cheese slices instead and have a cheesy pumpkin stew if you'd like)

12. Arrange toppings and serve with rice or baguette!
