Steamed savoury pumpkin cake

    I used the same Yam/Taro cake recipe which I posted earlier, but this time with pumpkin instead!


    Johor, Malaysia
    5 people made this


    • 1tsp salt or to taste
    • 1tsp sugar
    • 1/2tsp chicken stock powder
    • 1/2tsp white pepper powder
    • 250g rice flour
    • 20g tapioca flour
    • 450ml water
    • 10 shallots, sliced
    • 70g dried shrimps, soaked and chopped coarsely
    • 220g pumpkin, small cubed
    • Chopped spring onion
    • Chopped fresh red chilli


    1. Mix all seasonings with rice flour, tapioca flour and water by hand whisk till a watery batter is produced.
    2. Heat oil in a wok, sauté shallots till golden brown, add in dried shrimps and stir fry till fragrant.
    3. Dish out half of the mixture and keep aside for later garnishing. Add in pumpkin and stir fry for 1min. Pour in the watery batter and cook mixture for 1-2mins over low heat, stirring all the time, until the mixture turns to a thick paste.
    4. Pour the paste into a greased cake tin. Smoothen the surface with a spatula. Place it in the steamer and steam over high heat for 45 minutes.
    5. Remove the cake and allow it to cool thoroughly before cutting into slices.
    6. Garnish with shrimp/shallot mixture, chopped spring onion and red chilli on top.
    7. Serve with sweet chilli sambal (chilli sauce).
