Baked Stuffed Pumpkin

A terrific side dish that goes with most meats and is great for any occasion.



  1. Choose a large pumpkin of uniform width. Cut in half widthways and steam the two halves until the flesh begins to soften. Scoop out a hollow in each one, leaving about 1 inch thickness intact. Use the pumpkin in soup.
  2. Saute the onion and garlic in oil until soft.
  3. Add the spices and cashews and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and sultanas and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Finally add the rice, tomato paste and yoghurt and mix well. Season.
  6. Divide the filling equally between the pumpkin shells, packing it in tightly.
  7. Put the filled shells into a large baking tray, cover with foil and bake at 350 °F (175 °C) for 45 minutes, making sure pumpkin is completely cooked.

I looked up sultanas and found out they are a kind of raisin. Can't we just call them raisins since that is what everybody knows them as?
