Pumpkin Soup

Peel and cut into medium chunky pieces a small pumpkin
Wash and cut into chunky pieces 1 medium sized potato (dont peel it)
Prep up some french beans (about 50 gms), a handful of green peas
Chop up 1 tomato as well
Mash up 1 clove of garlic (optional)

Put a pressure cooker on medium gas and add some oil and a dollop of butter, as soon as the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook till light brown. Add a tablespoon of garam masala and a tablespoon of dhania-jeera powder, you may ofcourse vary these proportions according to your taste... Cook for a bit.

Now add all the other veggies, salt to taste and saute for 3-4 minutes on high flame

Add water to cover all the veggies by about 1 inch, you may add more or less depending on the consistency of the soup that you want finally. Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles and simmer for 10 minutes on very low flame. Let the cooker cool down before you open it.

Use a hand blender and whirrrrr the cooked veggies until smooth, optionally adding some milk if you want a more liquid consistency for the soup... add a small blob of fresh cream to give a nice colour to the soup and a richer taste.

Serve hot with toasted buttered whole wheat bread!

Sounds a bit more like Dhansak and a bit less than pumpkin soup eh?
