About this recipe: Now, here's a dish your humble 'kaddu' didn't foresee happening! Mashed pumpkin seasoned with ginger, dalchini and adrak, baked into the classic 'all American' pie. A great dish for autumn with hazelnut coffee!
This has become a favorite around here. Though, I must agree with others in that it isn't enough to sufficiently fill 2 pie crusts. I have successfully added another 1/2 - 3/4 cup of pumpkin (without adjusting any other ingredients) to help it stretch. Very delish, regardless. - 25 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great recipe is you are looking for a true taste of pumpkin. I was happy to find a recipe for cooking fresh pumpkin other than baking. But don't expect this to taste like pumpkin pie from the can....it is not as sweet or spicy. If you are looking for a spicer taste, I would recommend increasing each of the spices by 1/2 tsp. This was a very fun recipe to make, and I will make again. - 29 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The most excellent pumpkin pie. I added a pinch of allspice and a pinch of cloves to add a touch more spice to the pie. Also, the pumpkin I used was very watery, so I added a teaspoon of cornstarch to the final mixture before baking. It baked uniformly, didn't burn the crust, or the pie: it turned out great! The people I served it to said they would try to get my own cooking show!' Very that happy Mr. Scott shared it with us. - 02 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
