First time I had Pumpkin soup was made by my husband. I liked it so much that I finally learnt it from him. It is very easy to make. I like it because it is thick and when eaten with bread, it makes a complete meal!


Pumpkin (orange) – ½ kg. 

Onion, medium size – 1 no.

Milk – 1 cup

Butter – 2 tsp

Parsley – 1 tsp

Nutmeg powder – ½ tsp

Salt – taste

Pepper (freshly ground) – ½ tsp

Vegetable stock – 1 cube


  •      Clean and cut pumpkin into 1” cubes, with the skin intact.
  •     Cut onion into big chunks.
  •     Cook pumpkin and onion adding 2 cups of water, in a pressure cooker.
  •     When cooled, blend the mixture with a hand blender or a mixer / grinder, to form a smooth paste.
  •     Add milk, butter and the spices.
  •     Check for seasoning and adjust the thickness by adding water.
