İt's a magazine that can be bought ın most bookstores ın M'sia. Lydia, the pumpkin that I hv cooked turned mushy (sob sob), any advice? No water added and I cooked over low heat wıth covered pot.

Bukan buku sendiri lagi, buku tu kebanyakan masakan cina.

Thanks. It is a bi-monthly magazine with >90% recipes and the rest are travelling, eating places, etc.

For diced pumkin, cover is not necessary, but if you want to speed up the process, you can cook with cover and reduce the cooking time. FYI, certain type of pumpkin turns mushy easily.

Pumpkin is packed of goodies... care to share your mil's version of fried rice?

Hi Lydia, I did as what you said i.e.to cook without cover and it works this time! My husband loves it so much. I used bulgur rice (cracked wheat commonly found in middle-east and cheaper than rice here)and fresh mushroom instead. Thank you for sharing the recipe, it'll certainly appear more on my dinning table, especially with winter coming soon. LOL.

Hi Annie,
Glad that you made it! Will try with bulgur rice if I can find some here. Thanks for sharing.
