It is common for many peasant families to cut up chunks of nangua 南瓜 and steam it together with their rice. Nangua, most commonly translated into English as "pumpkin," can also refer to several varieties of gourd commonly grown throughout Yilong with a sweet orange flesh and seeds similar to the pumpkin.
I confess that I have never tried steamed pumpkin rice, so making it would be a completely new experience. It seems like a warm, homey dish, though. Easy to make and perfect for Fall.
