Great Eastern's deep-fried pumpkin and egg yolk ball [San Francisco]

We went to Great Eastern earlier this week for the first time. Really liked it a lot and were glad we got there at 11:00 since it filled up after that. On the recommendations from this board, we got the pumpkin and egg yolk balls and loved them - crispy light texture and not too sweet. I've never had this before and was curious about how it's made. Where was the pumpkin and where was the egg yolk? There was some yellow filling inside. Was that the egg yolk? Is this a common type of dim sum? I haven't noticed it on other menus, but maybe I wasn't paying attention. Just curious and always looking to be better educated about dim sum. Thanks!
