Recipe Notes

  • Use fresh pumpkin for this recipe and make small chunks so that it becomes easier to cook.
  • I have not boiled pumpkin but cooked it on the stove, it takes 10-12 minutes to cook pumpkin if cooked on a medium flame and stirring in between,
  • Pumpkin has its own moisture content that will allow it to cook, so there is no need to add water.
  • If you want to add to increase the cooking time, add half a cup and cover the pan with a lid. This was you can cook a little faster. But be sure to check it between and stir.
