Spicy Pumpkin Mash

Spicy Pumpkin Mash
This pumpkin mash is a zesty alternative to the regular pumpkin mash and tastes great with bread. It is super easy to prepare and can be prepared just before serving.

What you need:
600 g sweet pumpkin deseeded, peeled and cut into chunks
1 pinch sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon five spice powder
½ teaspoon red chilli powder
1 dried bay leaf
1 table spoon olive oil
Chopped coriander for garnish

How to cook:
1.Boil the pumpkin till it is tender, and breaks with a fork.
2.Add oil to a hot skillet. Add all the ingredients except the pumpkin and salt to the oil, and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
3.Remove from fire, and add the contents of the skillet to the boiled pumpkin.
4.Add the chopped coriander, and mash the pumpkin partly, and fold in the spice mixture into the mashed pumpkin.
5.Do not mash the pumpkin completely, just mash haphazardly such that there are small chunks of pumpkin left in the mash.
