One Pot Pumpkin Rice

DSC_0273 (2)

This is a life saving recipe when we worked late tonight and I was really reluctant to eat out. Preparation took about 20mins and I just sat back, relaxed and let the rice cooker do the rest of the work for me. I posted this recipe before but I did some small changes this time and actually weighed my pumpkin for a more precise recipe. If you want to make a quick dinner that is fuss free but still very yummy, this recipe is for you!


  1. 190g deseeded and skinned Pumpkin, cut in big cubes
  2. 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  3. 4 shallots, chopped
  4. 4 dried Chinese mushrooms, sliced
  5. 1 can stewed pork, sliced
  6. 1 cup basmati rice
  7. 4 tbsp soy sauce
  8. 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  9. 1 tbsp thick dark soy
  10. 1 tbsp sesame oil
  11. Pepper
  12. 1 1/8 cup chicken stock


  1. Saute garlic and shallots until fragrant.
  2. Fry mushrooms until lightly browned.
  3. Add stewed pork and fry briefly
  4. Mix in rice and fry until opaque
  5. Pour in sauces and mix evenly.
  6. Pour in chicken stock and mix thoroughly
  7. Turn off heat, add in pumpkin and mix well
  8. Transfer to rice cooker and cook as per normal.
  9. When rice is ready, scoop gently onto a plate without mashing the pumpkin
  10. Top with spring onions and coriander.
