Steamed Pumpkin Kueh
This steamed kueh or cake is one of the Chinese favourite
snacks for Malaysian which you can find it in Dim Sum restaurants
also.  You eat it with or without sweet or chilli sauce or even pan fried.
The texture is a bit soft but overall, it is edible.  If less 10% of water,
the texture will be perfect.  Because my rice flour was short of 45g,
I minus some water….should have minus more water.
Next try, if not enough of rice flour, I won’t ‘main-main” (play)
with it. Ha ha Ha.  Both of my dearest colleagues Stephanie Chua and
Elly Chong agreed to my statements while they are sampling it for
their breakfast which I have brought for them.
They also said to add more salt and pepper.
500g Rice Flour.
500g Pumpkin (Diced).
3tsp Salt / 2tsp Pepper / 2tsp Chicken Stock / 2tsp Five Spice Powder.
2 litres Water.
One Packet of Choi Bo (Salted Preserved Radish).
Note : Soak and wash a few times.  Later squeeze all the water.
Pan fry the Choi Bo with little bit of oil and keep at one side.
Mix well the Water with the Rice Flour and keep at one side.
Heat up the wok with 1/2 tablespoon of cooking oil.
Pour in the diced Pumpkin and stir for few times.
Note  :  Do not over cook it.
Pour in the Salt, Pepper, Chicken Stock and Five Spice Powder
and stir until well combined.
Pour in the Rice Flour batter.
And keep on stirring, stirring with medium fire.
Do not stop stirring because the bottom will burn very easily.
Keep on stirring.
Note  :  Taste the batter, if the batter is bland, adjust the seasoning
to your choice.
Until the mixture turn thick and stiff.
Once you notice the batter leaving the side of your wok
or lumping all together, then it is done.  Turn off the fire.
Pour the half batter into a well grease pan and smooth
the top with the back of your spoon.
Pour the other half balance of the batter into another
well grease pan and smooth the top with the back of your spoon.
Steam the batter with rapid boiling water for 50 minutes
or until the skewer come out clean.
This is another picture that I used bamboo steamer.
Steam the batter with rapid boiling water for 50 minutes
or until the skewer come out clean.
Once done, let it 100% cool because cutting into desired sizes.
Look appetizing?
You have to cook it in order to taste it because I cannot courier to you!!!
Happy Cooking.
Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
