Creamy Pumpkin Dessert

Managed to gather all the ingredients for this making this dessert that is strongly recommend by one of my blogger's friend Tracy. She used to cook this dessert at least 2 - 3 times a month. She get to know this dessert from one of the blogsite at under JinGua Hu at 12 August 2005.

Based on the description from the website and some guideline of how much ingredients to add from Tracy. I came out of my own version of Creamy Pumpkin Dessert. But I think, next time I should chopped the ingredients even more finely because base on the actually Jin Gua Hu dessert, the ingredients seems to be tiny little bits and pieces. So I guess it all depend on individual, if you like to have a more crunchy texture then what I had is just nice for you......

1/4 Wedges Of Pumpkin, about 300g
Set aside 100g Of Pumpkin, finely chopped
5 Water Chestnuts, finely chopped
1 Medium Orange Sweet Potato, finely chopped
1 Medium Japanese White Potato, finely chopped
1/2 Cup Uncook Sago
1/2 Cup Cream Corn/Sweet Corn
Few Pieces Of Pandan Leaves

1. First, boil half a big pot of water and add in the un-cooked sago, boil and stir occasional over medium heat until sago is almost clear. (about 10 mins, then rinse and soak in cold water for later used)
2. While waiting for the sago to cook, peel and cut 200g pumpkin into cubes.
3. Bring 1.5 litres of water to boil, add in the pumpkin cubes and cook until tender then remove.
4. Add in the finely chopped, pumpkin, sweet potato, water chestnut, drained sago and pandan leaves in the water and simmer over medium low heat.
5. Puree the hot pumpkin with 1 cup of water(from cooking the pumpkin) until smooth then pour into the pot together with the rest of the ingredients.
6. When it boils, add in the sago and stir occasionally to prevent sago from sticking to each other and the bottom of the pot.
7. Simmer until the all the ingredients had cooked through then add in the corn and some rock sugar to taste.
8. Adjust water to consistency (thickness) of the soup that you desire whether too thick or watery.

If you put the cool pumpkin dessert in the fridge, it will became slightly harden like jelly. So in order to make it more creamy, you can add a few tablespoons of Fresh Milk to dilute it to the consistency that you prefer. To us, we prefer to eat it cold with some fresh milk as it's more creamy and fragrant. Posted by Picasa
