Pumpkin Soup

I was intoduced to Pumpkin, through Cindrella's Carriage. Every Girl would have dreamed to have a Carriage, Glassy Shoes, and ofcourse Prince Charming. Anyway in reality we get all in little size or some compromise have to be done.  coming to the topic, i cook pumpkins only during Pongal, and thats Sundu Curry. After looking at all your Pumpkin Soup's, i could'nt resist more in trying it. here it is..

My Recipe is so simple, i just sauted the pumpkin cubes in two spoons of oil and grinded them by adding little water. then i made them boil and added little pepper and salt.
Yes, you guessed it right, such a lazy recipe. no onion's, no cream, nothing. yet it was so delicious and iam going to try next time with little addition's.
