Peta Bojo, Indonesian Sweet Pumpkin Soup!


Peta means porridge or soup, and bojo means pumpkin, this name is taken from the Konjo language, one of the Makassaric languages ​​from Indonesia.

Previously I've made creamy pumpkin soup which may be very familiar to your tongue.  But, now I want to try the version of pumpkin soup that my mother and grandmother often make at home.  So I feel heartwarming when I try to make it too.

Throughout Indonesia or perhaps throughout the world, this peta bojo is maybe familiar and only has a different name.  But, for those of you who are still curious, you can take a peek at the full recipe below!


 • 400 gr pumpkin
 • 10 tbsp grated brown sugar
 • 350 ml of water
 • 5 tbsp heavy coconut milk
 • A pinch of salt

How to make:

  1. Peel the pumpkin until clean then cut it into cubes and then with a rather large size.
  2. Add the grated brown sugar, mix well and cook over medium heat until the pumpkin texture becomes soft.
  3. Add coconut milk and salt, stir again, and taste correction.
  4. If you want creamy gravy, blend some of the pumpkins and then pour it back into the skillet.
  5. Remove and serve, add thick coconut milk as a garnish.

Make sure you choose a pumpkin that is young with a soft, hollow texture when cooked because some pumpkins remain firm even after cooking.

For the number of ingredients, you can just create according to your taste, enjoy!
