Creamy Pumpkin soup

This is a very tasty and simple soup which I like to have for a light lunch along with bread. It has a very inviting orange colour and nicely flavoured.

A bit of history: The pumpkin soup has its origins from the country Haiti. It was first made as part of their celebration of Haitian Independence from the French Colonists in 1804. It is their symbol of unity during times of adversity.

The recipe below is not the original version as pumpkin soup has evolved into different variations based on ingredients used. Hope you like this simple version and enjoy!

Things you need:

1. Pumpkin cut into medium cubes (Any variety, I used Kent)- 2 cups
2. Onion – 1
3. Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
4. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
5. Coriander powder – 1 tsp
6. Oil/butter – 2 tblsp
7. Cream – 1 tblsp (Optional)
