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.
