Ginataang Kalabasa

I am dreaming of typical ginitaang kalabasa right now. Although i ate so many different kinds of food today but seems i'm not satisfy with those. I sent hubby two times today to different store and drive thru places to get me food but still i'm hungry and looking for food. This pinay basically looking for typical ginitaang kalabasa. I'm not pregnant, i'm not ready yet to have another one. I'm just craving ordinary filipino food. So, since i can't get no ginitaang kalabasa to any places here i might cook me here afterwards. Looking that picture below makes me crazy and wanted to eat it right now. I wish mama is here to cook..hehehe!

1 kilo squash, cut into cubes (1"x1")
1/4 kilo shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 pieces tomatoes, diced
2 onions, chopped
1 head garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of ginger root, crushed and minced
4 tablespoons of cooking or olive oil
2 pieces long chilli peppers
2 tablespoons of shrimp paste (bagoong)
2 cups coconut milk
1 cups coconut cream (katang gata)
2 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons of fish sauce (patis)

Methods on Preparation:
On a big pan, heal oil. Sauté garlic, onions until light brown then add ginger, cook until onions become translucent.

Add the tomatoes, squash, chicken stock, shrimp paste and the coconut milk. Let boil then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the liquid has reduced and the squash becomes tender.

Add the coconut cream, long chilli peppers and the shrimps. Bring again to a boil and simmer for a few more minutes.

Serve hot with plain rice.
