Pumpkin Angku Kuih

When I made my first Angku Kuih just less than two weeks ago,  the filling was a bit too dry to my taste.  Well, can't blame me as this is my first attempt.  

When Doreen of My Little Favourite DIY left comment on my post advising to steam the green bean with some added water, I have kept that in mind.  And when Doreen made Pumpkin Angku Kuih lately, I was adamant to try it again.

Pumpkin Angku Kuih
Recipe sourced from Mui Mui of my little favourite DIY

Ingredients for the skin:
200 g glutinous rice flour
 2 tbsp oil
100 g steamed pumpkin
1 tbsp sugar
100 ml thick coconut milk

Ingredients for the filling: 
150g split green bean, soaked overnight
60 g castor sugar 
4 tbsp of canola oil

Banana leaves
Soaked the split green bean overnight or at least 4 hours. Drain and steamed until it is soft. 
(Sprinkle a few tablespoons of water onto the split green bean before steaming).

Mashed the steamed split green bean while it is still hot or blend it in a food processor into a paste. 
Heat up the 4 tbsp oil in a frying pan, add in the mashed green bean, sugar, and stir fry until it can leave the side of pan.  Remove and leave to cool.  Form  into small balls (approx. 13g per ball).

Skin Dough  
Mixed sugar, oil and mashed steamed pumpkin together.  Make a well in the centre of the glutinous flour and slowly pour the mixture in bit by bit. Keep mixing until it form into a dough.

Mixed and knead the mixture into a pliable dough. Divide them into small portion of 17g each.
Wrap up 1 part of filling with 1 part of skin, press into the Angku mould and knock out.  Line with a piece of greased banana leaf and steam with high heat for 3-5 minutes.

Remove and brush the Angku kuih with oil.

I don't know why my Pumpkin Angku Kuih looked in yellowish colour rather than in orangey pumpkin colour.   You might have thought I used the Yellow Sweet Potato instead!

Well, at least this time my filling is not dry but smooth in taste (I blend the green bean in food processor)........this is what I am looking for!  Thank you Mui Mui!
