1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika

Heat the oil in a saucepan, onions and stir. Fry gently for about five minutes, then stir in the cubed pumpkin.
Add the stock, season with salt, pepper, cumin and paprika. 

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the pumpkin has softened.
