  • Add pumpkin cubes, continue frying for 2-3 minutes, add salt, pepper and spices and again continue frying for 1-2 minutes.

  • Remove from stove and puree the vegetables, then add the rest of the water or stock and heat near boiling point, stirring constantly.
  • Add yoghurt, stirring, heat through (don't boil!) and add more salt and pepper to taste, if necessary.
