Ginataang Kalabasa at Malunggay

My mom had the vacant lot next to their house cleaned. Each month when she does, we receive a bag full of malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves harvested from that lot.

This month, my lola also included a slice of local kalabasa (squash) and bunga ng malunggay (young malunggay seed pods) in our loot bag. =) I've been wondering what to do with them and the first thing that came to my mind was cooking them in coconut milk.

Ginataang Kalabasa at Malunggay (Squash and Malunggay in Coconut Milk)

Ingredients: (I'm giving rough quantity estimates)
1/4kg shrimps, peeled and deveined
1 1/2cups squash, cut into serving pieces
3cups malunggay leaves
1 1/2cups bunga ng malunggay
1pc onion, minced
4cloves garlic, minced
2cups coconut milk
2pcs siling haba (lady-finger)
patis (fish sauce) to taste

How I did it:
In a pan, I sauteed the onion and garlic then added the shrimp. Once the shrimps turn pinkish, add the squash and bunga ng malunggay. Once the squash becomes tender, pour the coconut milk and add the siling haba. Simmer for about 10minutes or until cooked. Season with fish sauce then add the malunggay leaves. Leave for a minute or two then turn off the heat.

This dish surely's packed with a lot of nutrients -  having the vitamin rich malunggay and kalabasa.
You gotta try this! =)
