How to Cook Pumpkin Pie

Written by Candice SongUpdated Oct. 14, 2021

Pumpkin is native to North America. It was introduced into China a long time ago. Now it has been planted all over China and it is a common ingredient of Chinese cooking. Pumpkin has a rich nutritional value containing starch, protein, carotene, and vitamins B and C. There are many ways to make pumpkin pie with different fillings. Here we will introduce one of them.

Ingredients and Seasonings

Main ingredients: 400g pumpkin, 1 banana, half a bowl of sticky rice flour

Seasonings: some cooking oil

(The amount of the seasonings listed above can be adjusted according to personal taste.)

Pumpkin Pie


  • Peel and slice the banana.
  • Peel the pumpkin and remove the pulp and seeds. Clean and slice it.

Cooking Instructions:

Pumpkin Pie

  • Steam the pumpkin for about 15 minutes on a high heat.
  • Take out the pumpkin and mash it. Mix the mashed pumpkin with sticky rice flour to create a pumpkin paste. If it is too dry, please add some water. Divide it into small portions.
  • Press the small portions flat. Add one or two pieces of banana and mold them into flat round shapes to create the pumpkin pies.
  • Add cooking oil into a pan and heat it to 50% of its temperature. Put the pumpkin pies into the pan and fry them over a medium-low heat until they become golden.
  • Turn the pumpkin pies over and fry them until they are golden.
  • The pumpkin pies are finished.

(If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can add some sugar when you make the pumpkin paste. If you don’t like the banana filling, you can replace it with another food.)
