Stir a bit, then pour in ca. 1 cup of hot water. Close the lid and turn down the heat to medium level. Let the dish ‘stew’ for around 15min (the time needed depends on the size of the pumpkin chunks). Pay attention to the water level, so that it does not dry out completely.

When the pumpkins turn soft, the dish is ready. Add salt to taste. Decorate with some minced leek or grass leek before serving.
