  1. Cut pumpkin in half, remove seeds, pith and outer skin. Cut into 5x7.5cm pieces.
  2. Place pumpkin (0.9-1.35kg) in large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add flour and stir to evenly coat.
  3. Melt butter in a large deep frying pan over medium heat. Add pumpkin and cook, turning often until golden brown and tender.


Sugar pumpkins look like miniature versions of the large orange pumpkins you see around Halloween. They are smaller, sweeter and have more flavour than their larger counterparts.
