About

By putting the risotto into the pumpkin, it absorbs the flavours of the pumpkin and the pumpkin keeps it warm. I did not use any butter or cream to make this dish. You can replace the potatoes into other vegetables. For example, you can add saffron or cinnamon for the additional orange color.
