Roasted Pumpkin Puree
The roasted Pumpkin Puree can be made by roasting the large chunks of pumpkin in the oven or on the stove-top and then blending it into a thick puree.
I haven’t tried this method yet. But I am all ears to the audience about how this worked for them.
I have simply boiled, cooled, and mashed the pumpkin and it was a bit runny puree.
Why Homemade Puree of Pumpkin is watery?
It’s natural for the homemade pumpkin puree to be runny or watery, especially when you boil it in water in a pressure cooker. If you wish to have thick pumpkin puree, you may sieve this homemade puree and collect the water in a bowl. This leftover water can be used to knead the dough.
