Pumpkin Stir-fry (Pad Fuk Tong)

Halloween is coming and you may end up with a lot of pumpkin flesh to use up.  We don't celebrate Halloween much in Thailand, its a western thing  that's only done in discotechs and restaurants.  However we do eat this pumpkin stir fry (pad fuk tong) all year round.  This stir-fry is a great alternative to meat dishes and a great way to use up the pumpkin you hollow out of the lantern!
