Before the task;

On 10th March 2010, Wednesday in Kitchen A, Block A, UNITAR. This is our third 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 (50 self raising flour:50 pumpkin flour).

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.
