How to prepare homemade pumpkin puree
To prepare pumpkin puree, peel and scrape out pith and seeds from a wedge of pumpkin. Cut into big chunks. Either steam or pressure cook (or in Instant pot) with 1/2 cup water for 5 minutes (i.e. for a pressure cooker, after first whistle, reduce flame and cook on sim for 5 minutes). Once pressure drops, open the cooker, remove cooked pieces of pumpkin and puree in a mixer. Use in the recipe immediately. Alternatively, freeze the puree in an ice tray. Pack the pumpkin puree cubes in a resealable bag in the freezer and use as required in a variety of recipes.
