Afghani Sweet Pumpkin ( Kaddo Bowrani – کدو بورانی )


Afghani Sweet Pumpkin ( Kaddo Bowrani – کدو بورانی )

Ready 45 minutes

Serves : 4



4 pound Pumpkin; fresh
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
0.25 cup Splenda; or Sugar if desired
0.5 teaspoon Cinnamon, ground

Yogurt Sauce

1 cup plain yogurt; thicker Greek yogurt is best
1 clove Garlic; crushed
0.125 teaspoon kosher salt; to taste
0.125 teaspoon Black Pepper; to taste

Meat Sauce

2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 medium Onions; chopped
1 pound Lamb, lean ground; or beef
1 clove Garlic; crushed
1 pinch kosher salt; to taste
1 dash Black Pepper; freshly ground, to taste
1 cup Tomato sauce
0.5 cup water



Set the oven at 350F

Cut the pumpkin into quarters.

Remove seeds and strings, peel the skin with a vegetable peeler, and cut down into about 2-inch chunks.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in an oven proof skillet (such as an AllClad) Brown the pumpkin pieces, turning frequently, until golden brown (about 5 minutes) taking care not to scorch it.

Mix sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over pumpkin.

Cover and bake for 30 minutes, or until tender.

While this seems like a lot of sugar, the dish does not come out sweet in the end, and it needs this much the sugar.

If you want to cut carbs & calories, use Splenda instead of sugar

While the pumpkin is baking, make the yogurt sauce and the meat sauce.

Yogurt sauce:

Mix together yogurt with one clove of crushed garlic in a bowl; season to taste with salt & pepper.

Meat sauce:

In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and cook the onions until lightly browned.

Add ground lamb or beef, the second clove of crushed garlic, and salt & pepper.

Mix well and cook until meat is browned.

Add tomato sauce and water, mix thoroughly and bring to a simmer, lower heat, and cook about 20 minutes until it cooks down to a thick sauce.

A vegetarian version of the sauce can be made by eliminating the meat.

To serve:

Spoon yogurt sauce onto dinner plates, add a portion of the cooked pumpkin, and top with meat sauce.

Serves 4 as a main course or 6 as an appetizer.

This goes nicely with a rice pilaf or cooked quinoa.
