Kadu Bouranee
Yield: 4 servings

2 lb fresh pumpkin or squash
1/4 c corn oil

Reviewer: K. Epstein from McLean, VA USA
This recipe turns out just like the dish served at our favorite Afghan restaurant and is popular with both unadventurous eaters and sophisticates. It's also popular at potluck suppers, where vegetarians often have few choices. In a pinch I've used standard ground coriander, although grinding your own probably gives a better result. I also try not to get a tomato sauce with a lot of other herbs in it (such as basil, etc.) Leave yourself some time to do it and don't worry if it's done early. As long as you haven't put the yoghurt on yet, it does just fine reheated and you can put it out at the last minute. I get many requests for the recipe.
