Steam Pumpkin Cake

Whenever I visit my friend,she'll make this Steam Pumpkin Cake for us.She knew my girls love this Steam Pumpkins Cake.She not only make for us, but,she also handed me the recipe.
Last Tuesday night I made this and bring it over to my eldest school the next day.We got parent and teachers meeting,and breakfast too....LOL. They like it very much.I'll share the recipe here.
I like to sprinkle fried shallots just before I eat it,so, I can feel the crunch of the fried shallots,very nice.

Here's the recipe:

375 gm rice flour
150 tang ming flour (wheat flour/starch)
750 ml water

600 gm pumpkin ( weight without skin)
4 tbsp oil
3/4 bowl dried shrimp (blend finely)
5 tbsp chopped shallot
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
570 ml water

Some fried shallots
1 bowl of dried shrimps, finely blended ,and deep fry till crispy.

Mix (A) ingredient,stir well blended.Set aside.
Chop pumpkins into small chunk bites.
Heat a wok, add oil, fry chopped shallots until fragrant.
Add in chopped garlic,Stir fry until fragrant.
Add in dried shrimp,stir fry until fragrant.
Add in chopped pumpkin,fry again for about 2 minutes.
Add in sugar, salt and pepper,stir, add in water.
Cook till the pumpkin turn soft.
Turn to small fire, smash all the pumpkins with a smasher (I'll show you how )
Add in the pre-mix (A) ingredients.Off the fire,and stir until well mix.
Pour into square 9" tray,and steam high heat for about 30 minutes.
When done, off the fire,immediately sprinkle the fried dried shrimp.
Sprinkles some fried shallots and serve.

Use a smasher to smash the pumpkins, becareful,cause it's hot!
