we used a butternut squash and some potatoes instead of the pumpkin, and butter instead of the milk! Going to post a picture soon! DELICIOUS AMAZING !!!


I noticed the metric measurements. Is that coriander seed or coriander leaf (cilantro)?

Otherwise, this looks interesting. It's going to be next on my list.


Cook pumpkin?  Please specify.


Yummy! We left out the tofu and just mashed up the pumpkin using some rice milk, and only about 1 to 2 teaspoons of coriander (even that seemed like a bit much spice, so I'm wondering if the 2 tablespoons is a misprint?).  Also, we sauteed the rice and everything else in water rather than oil. The poppyseeds are a surprisingly nice addition to the rice. We'll be making this one again for sure. Thanks for the recipe!!
