'Labu' is pumpkin and 'Cangkok Manis' is 'Mani Chai' or 'Lakian Chai' or 'Sweet Vegetable' as I called it. I found out it has a scientific name called Sauropus androgynous.
I love both these vegetables and once in a while cooked them in this way :)
My 'Masak Lemak Labu and Cangkok Manis'
'Labu Kuning' (yellow pumpkin) I have peeled, cut them into small cubes and washed
The 'Cangkok Manis' (Sweet Vegetable) I have pulled the leaves from their small branches, squeezed the leaves when cleaning them and leave to dry in a sieve.
Ground one small red onions, 5 garlic and belacan (shrimp paste) and because I want it hot, 10 'cili padi' (very hot small local red chillies).
Break a stalk of lemon grass. Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder.
Saute all the above ingredients.
Add in some water (how much soup I want).
Add the washed cubed pumpkin and the sweet vegetable in.
Add in 2 packet of 'Cocolin' powdered coconut milk (mix in a little water to dilute).
Bring to boil and until pumpkin cubes are soft.
Add salt and ajinomoto to taste.
Eat with hot rice. With this dish I also fried 'ikan bilis' (anchovies) to eat for our lunch.
I told hubby let's go 'economy' today and I am a bit lazy to cook too many things today :p
