Firstly peel the pumpkin skin and remove seeds and pulp. Cut pumpkin into small cubes.

Then, add the pumpkin and small pieces potatoes.

Then season with salt, and add turmeric and ginger. Fry while stirring at approx. 5-7 minutes.

Then add the stock and cover pot with lid. Then leave it to boil over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes and check on the consistency.

Then add the blanched tomato, (peeled and halved with the seeds removed then cut into cubes) . Add to pot and cook further for 5-7 minutes until vegetables are soft.
