300 gr pumpkin
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 2 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of pepper
1 tsp turmeric
Salt to taste

Take a pumpkin, peel it and cut into cubes.

Add the rest of the spices and fry for another 10 seconds.
Add pumpkin, salt (to taste), 2 tablespoons of water and simmer for 10 minutes under the lid.
Serve sprinkled with seeds, drizzled with pumpkin oil and generously sprinkled with herbs.
