Steamed Sweet Pumpkin Kuih


Here's another sweet delicacy of Malaysia, except that pumpkin flavour kuih is seldom available at the local food stalls. I only managed to get them once a month from a local vegetarian food stall. Do you think you will have such patient to wait for another 30 days for something you're craving!!! ha... So, here's what I did.

Ingredients :

(A)
200gm mashed pumpkin
475ml coconut milk

(B)
250gm sugar
180ml water
pandan leaves
(combined all ingredients and leave to boil till sugar dissolved, then withdraw the leaves)

(C)
175gm rice flour
25gm green pea flour
140gm sago flour
1/2 tspn salt
(combined all ingredients and mix well)

Method :
(1) stir in ingredients (A) into ingredients (C) and mix to combine.

(2) then slowly add in ingredients (B) and beat into smooth batter.
(3) coat an 8" tray with some oil and preheat the steamer.
(4) pour batter to tray and let to steamed for about 45mins or untill set.
(5) leave to cool completely before slicing.


This kind of kuih is also quite suitable to serve at any parties. Hope you guys will love it too! Enjoy.

I'm sending this to 3 Hungry Tummies @ Muhibbah Malaysian Monday.

  6. What a novel way to prepare pumpkin, Kristy. It looks absolutely lovely. Pumpkin season doesn't begin around here for a while yet. I'm wondering whether some sort of squash would work too.

    Thank you so much for sharing...hope you had a pleasant blogging rest:)

  22. Hi Everyone

    Thanks so much for stopping by and glad you guys love this pumpkin sweet treat too.

    Premalatha, welcome to my humble little space. Hope you will like it here.

    Unknown, you may try to replace sago flour with tapioca flour but not cornflour or wheat flour. Or you can either use Hoen Kwe flour as well! Hope this will help. Wish you luck.

    Hope you are all having a terrific day.

    Blessings, Kristy

  33. am on a bit of a kick, clicking on all your kueh recipes. they look fab and i love love love kuehs. is there a reason for using these 3 flours- will the texture suffer if I leave out the green pea flour? (don't want to buy without a great need..)

  34. Hi Kristy,

    I made this steamed sweet pumpkin kuih yesterday. For a start, all the ingredients were divided by half. I followed the recipes and steps except the coconut milk, i replaced with fresh milk. After steaming for half an hour, i realised there was some milk on the surface on the kuih. Thus I steamed for another half an hour. There was still some milk on the surface but turned off the fire. After cooling, the kuih absorbed the milk. The taste was good but the texture was soft and the bottom was hard. Was it the milk and too much?? Pls help. I want to try again

  35. Hi Anonymous,

    Firstly, I'm glad you tried this recipe. Milk is less concentrate than coconut milk. Coconut milk is thicker and the flour mixture won't fall below even if you leave it on a tray unlike milk. If you still want to try with the milk. It's best to boil the mixture till thicker before steaming (with a doible boiler, make sure the bottom is not burnt).
    Hope this will help. All the best.
    Kristy
