Before the task;

On 31th March 2010, Wednesday in Kitchen A, Block A, UNITAR. This is our fifth class in experimental food using our own idea. For this week, we used pumpkin flour instead of boiled pumpkin , and added along with diced pumpkin. Then, this week we did 1 experiment (70 self raising flour:30 pumpkin flour) . As usual, we started our class with 'Al-Fatihah'. Before we can start our experiment, we were given a short briefing.

During the task;

Before starting to bake our cake, we have to do pumpkin flour. These are the methods to do the flour:

  1. Heat the oven.
  2. Clean the pumpkin. Remove the skin and seeds.
  3. Slice the pumpkin using mandoline. Adjust the mandoline so that the pumpkin can be sliced thinly.
  4. Place a parchment paper onto the tray. Prepare few trays so that it will be easy for baking the sliced pumpkin.
  5. Arrange the sliced pumpkin onto the tray.
  6. Bake the sliced pumpkin until it turns dry, crispy and golden-brown colour.
  7. Remove the pumpkin chips into a dry bowl, let them cool for a moment before blending them.
  8. Blend the pumpkin chips until they turns into flour.
  9. Repeat the same steps until there are no more sliced pumpkin left.
  10. Now, the pumpkin flour can be use.
