  2. Turn on the sauce function in your pressure cooker and add the chopped onion to the inner pot of your pressure cooker and saute in a little olive oil.

  3. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, salt and pepper to the onions and stir well.

  4. Add the chicken broth, coconut milk, and cooked fresh pumpkin to the pot and stir again. 

  5. Lock the lid, turn the steam release vent to 'sealing' and using the manual setting, adjust it to cook for 5 minutes at High Pressure.
