Chinese-style pumpkin pancakes


Happy Halloween



Sweat: 10%
Sweet: 90%

Happy BELATED Halloween. Bought a small pumpkin from the supermarket few days ago and decided to make some sweet nibbles for friends on Halloween. How awesome! Celebrating a Western festival with Chinese food! LOL! The look of these Chinese-style pumpkin pancakes did not do them justice. They were incredibly chewy and tasty and my friends and I loved them! We had them as desserts last night but feel free to serve them as a starter or main course to share. 




Ingredients:

400g Pumpkin
200g Glutinous rice flour
60g sugar
Sunflower oil
Condensed milk

Method:

1. Peel the pumpkin and cut into chunks. Steam for 15-20 minutes or when they are soft enough for mashing.
2. Place the pumpkin chunks in a mixing bowl. Turn them into mash with a fork or potato masher. Whilst warm, add the sugar and mix well. The amount of sugar is highly personal. Add or subtract to your preference.
3. Add one-third of the glutinous rice flour and mix well. Repeat this step twice. Mixture should not be too wet or too dry. Add extra glutinous flour if too wet or add water if too dry.
4. Form small round patties and fry them both side in hot oil.
5. Serve with condensed milk.
