  • 1. Heat the oil in a pot with a thick bottom, add chopped onion and fry it. Then add grated garlic, grated ginger and seeded and cut chili. Fry for a minute.
  • 2. Add peeled from the skin and seeds and diced apples (if you use raw pumpkin, slice it into pieces and add at this stage). Fry, stirring, for 4 to 5 minutes. If the pieces start to stick to the bottom of the pan, add 2 - 3 tablespoons of broth. Then add baked pumpkin, chopped into pieces. Season with salt, pepper, cinnamon and fry for more 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Add the broth in such a quantity that it is 2 cm above the level of the vegetables. Bring to boil, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes on a low flame till the pumpkin becomes fully soft. Mix the soup in a blender until smooth and, if necessary, by adding the boiling broth, bring it to desired consistency.
