I learnt to cook this homely pumpkin rice (南瓜饭) from my friend koalabear (thank you!). Not only is this pumpkin rice sweet and tasty, it also has a lovely bright and cheerful yellow hue when cooked.

The buttery aroma of the rice blended perfectly with the sweet taste of pumpkin, which is softly mashed when cooked. The result is just heavenly deliciousness.

Pumpkin Rice Recipe

The cooking method is similar to my mum’s cabbage rice – involving stir-frying some of the ingredients in the wok and then tossing everything to cook in the rice cooker.

      Hi Min … yes … wash the rice grains first (same way as how wash rice normally), then rinse the water, and fry the rice grains when they are still wet :)

    I grew up eating pumpkin rice but not so “complicated” ie with lesser ingredients. After seeing your recipe, I cooked mine by adding wolfberries and mushrooms and I must say I like it. The combination is awesome.
