Though many Burmese food is inspired by neighbouring nations such as Thailand and India, Burmese gourdurry is a unique Burmese food stuffed with a distinctive mix of sugary and savoury flavours that will stimulate your flavour bud and make you want seconds. During my many travels and lunches in Myanmar, I find curried squash one of my favourite cuisines.
I got this homemade gourd cream recipes from a dear friend's mom in Lashio, Myanmar. The food in Myanmar is unbelievably varied, like the land itself, and the meals usually mix a wide range of indigenous, mostly vegetable or seafood-based foods. The Burmese food has not been given the visibility it merits from the world food community, partly because of the country's 50 years of isolating itself under a oppressive rulers.
The Burmese kitchen usually has four basic flavours: tangy, acidic, salty und bittern. Myanmar usually eats with a variety of side dishes such as soups, marinated vegetable, hot chillies, cooked coffee-bean, acid Currys and stewed ricef. It is a four-person meal and takes 50 min. to prepare. You can use a gourd or gourd for this pumpkin-curry-recipes.
I usually use a cabocha instead of a pumpkins for this one. Gently halve the pumpkins or pumpkins with a large blade, then scratch out the seed and fibres in the middle of the pumpkins with a beater. Put onions, cilantro, chopped chilli, cilantro, chilli, lemon and laurel leaves in a blancher.
Whilst the raw materials are being boiled in the frying pans, throw the skinned pumpkins into thick dices, for example ½ inches by ½ inches. Boil the gourd mixture on a low flame for seven min after addition of crumbs, seaweed and curcuma. As soon as the kettle boils and the onion appears boiled, put the chopped pumpkins into the frying-pan and mix.
Put a cover on the frying pans and let the pumpkins boil every 2 min. while agitating for approx. 20 min. Reduce the temperature for the next 7 min while the food is cooking (see photo). When the gourd is well boiled, even a little muddy, put some extra virgin oliveo in the frying pans and let it boil for another 3 mins.
