1 1/2 cups baked pumpkin, skin removed
1 onion, baked
1/2 cup sour cream, quark or Greek yogurt. I use labne, made by reducing the moisture in good quality yogurt. Spreading the yogurt thickly over a very clean tea-towel will achieve this quite quickly. You will have a creamy and thick paste.
I teaspoon salt
4 tomatoes, slow-baked in the oven till partially dehydrated or use semi-dried tomatoes
1 red capsicum, halved and baked in the oven, skin up, till the fine skin blackens, then drain and chop
3 cloves garlic, preferably pre-cooked
sprig fresh oregano, or use dried
a few sprigs fresh thyme, or use dried
1 teaspoon cumin seed, and 1 teaspoon coriander seeds dry-roasted in a hot pan, then ground finely. You might like to increase the quantity to 1 tablespoon of each.
