Recipe's preparation

    Preparing the dough
  1. Add pumpkin, water, sugar and yeast into the TM bowl and mix for 2 mins at 37C on SP2.
  2. Add the oil, flour and salt and mix for 6 seconds on SP6.
  3. Knead the dough for 2 minutes and remove from bowl. Wrap the dough in the Thermomat and let it rest for at least 45 minues before shaping.
  4. Divide the dough into half and roll it flat to about 0.5 cm and use a 7cm cookie cutter to cut into smaller rounds.
  5. Place 5 pieces of cut dough on top of each other (overlapping in the middle) and space it out to about 15-20cm wide. Gently push the dough into a roll and cut into half to give you two roses. Place the roses on top of the small greaseproof paper.
  6. Let it rest for another 30 minutes in the Varoma dish and tray and when ready, steam it for 16 minutes on Varoma heat on SP4.
  7. Once ready, rest for 5 minutes and serve it warm with your favourite Coconut Jam (Kaya).
