Put the peeled, washed and chopped pumpkin cubes into the pressure cooker pan with water.
Cover the lid of the pressure cooker with whistle and cook for 4 whistles. Remove from the heat and let the pressure cooker cool by itself.
Remove the whistle and open the pressure cooker lid. Transfer the cooked pumpkin into a strainer and let keep aside for 30 minutes so that all the excess water is drained. (This water can be used to make soup or knead dough or dal or rice as stock).
Put the strained pumpkin back into the pressure cooker pan and mash it into smooth puree with the help of a potato masher.
Add milk powder, honey, cinnamon and vanilla essence. Mix well.
