Savoury Pumpkin Kuih 蒸金瓜糕

66 comments

After making two sweet kuih here and here, I still have some leftover pumpkin which is just nice enough to make one Savoury Pumpkin Kuih. It tasted so good that we finished three quarters of it within a day. This Pumpkin Kuih is almost the same as taro/yam kuih (Chinese steamed yam) which is usually taken as breakfast. It can be eaten steamed or panfried to give a crispy crust and eaten with a chilli sauce dip. The recipe here is very easy to follow. I added some minced chicken, dried shrimps, diced pumpkin, fried shallots and of course you need flour to go with it. I actually wanted to add fresh shallots and Chinese mushrooms but since I can't find any, I just added fried shallots which I found in my pantry. Adding in some Chinese mushrooms will certainly make the Pumpkin Kuih more flavourful.


 
   Savoury Pumpkin Kuih

          150g Rice flour
          1 tbsp Plain flour

          200g Diced pumpkin
          50g Dried shrimps (soak for 10 mins and roughly chop)
          150g Minced chicken (season with little pepper and salt)
          4 nos Sliced Shallot
          dash of pepper

         Method:

    Thanks Bobo.

    Li Shuan, 不如我们交换。。。 很喜欢你做的croissant :D

    Hi Sze Sze, 欢迎你来拿 :D

    Thanks Jen.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Chris, 吃完了!。。。 :DD

    小鱼,谢谢你的到来,喜欢什么,就随便拿 :D

    Zoe, same here :))

    Tiger, Too bad I can't pronounce in hokkiens probably but I know it is 金瓜糕 in Chinese.

    Small Kucing, Sorry that your making of yam kuih failed. You can refer my Steamed radish, can replace with yam.

    Happy Flour, I'll make another portion for breakfast :D

    Thanks Bee.

    Thank you Cheah :)

    Yes Lena, want to have more bite :D

    Kristy, I think making taro kuih, you have to steam the taro first because taro is harder than pumpkin.

    Thank you for your nice words, Nami :)

    Shirley, hope you make them soon :)

    小鲸,真的很好吃,要试试看哦!

    Thanks Jessie & Gert, Esther:)

    Esther, 你换了中文明字,我差一点,认不出来 :D
