2 slices fresh ginger, slivered
2 Teaspoons sweet bean paste
1 teaspoons chili paste with garlic
½ teaspoon crushed or ground Sichuan peppercorns
1 three-inch square red fermented doufu, mashed

2. Mix brown sugar, ginger, sweet bean sauce, chili paste, and the crushed Sichuan peppercorns with half cup cold water, stir in the doufu and chicken thighs and steam covered for ten minutes.
3. Pour this into the pumpkin, cover it with the pumpkin top, and steam over boiling water for thirty minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the pumpkin soft and clean.
4. Serve with two large spoons so everyone can help themselves to the pumpkin flesh and its contents.
5. Make sure the pumpkin is in a bowl that will not tip over, serve the seeds in their own small bowl.
