Steamed Pumpkin Cake

My mother didn’t like to cook much apart from the usual main meals. This was one of the rare snacky things she used to make. As I said in the last post on Fried Radish Cakes, you can make radish cakes using this recipe; just simply substitute the pumpkin with grated radish.

500g pumpkin mash, I like to leave some in cubes for a bit of texture
300g rice flour
2 tbsp plain flour (optional if you are going gluten free)
750ml water
50g dried shrimps, roughly chopped
1 Chinese sausage, chopped
150g pork mince (traditionally finely chopped belly pork is used)
4 stalks spring onion, chopped
1 fresh chilli, chopped (optional)
Salt and pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Fried shallots for garnish

1.          Heat oil in fry pan.
2.          Sauté garlic, shrimps, mince and sausages.
3.          Add pumpkin, flour and water, all half the chilli and 1/3 of the spring onion.
4.          Add salt and pepper to taste.
5.          Stir until the batter thickens a bit.
6.          Pour into a greased tray.
7.          Steam at high heat for 45 minutes.
8.          Remove from steamer; sprinkle the top with the chilli, spring onions and fried shallots.
9.          Cut into squares to serve when cooled.
