MeasureIngredient
2 cups Pumpkin, peeled & cubed
2 cups Sweet potatoes, cubed
3 tablespoons Onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Oil
  Juice of 1/2 lemon
½ teaspoon Cloves
1 teaspoon Salt
1½ cup Coconut milk
1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Fry the onion into oil until golden. Combine with the pumpkin & the sweet potatoes in a heavy pot. Add lemon juice, cloves, salt & 1 c coconut milk. Cover & simmer for 10 minutes.

Uncover, stir gently & add cinnamon. Cook a further 15 to 20 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking. Add more milk if necessary.

VARIATION: Thin ¼ c peanut butter with ½ c hot water, adding water a little at a time. Add more water to make a cup & use in the recipe instead of coconut milk. "The Africa News Cookbook"
