While the pumpkin is simmering toast fennel, cumin and coriander seeds on high heat in a dry skillet, stirring constantly, until the seeds are light brown. Grind the seeds in a coffee grinder. It is important to grind the spices until they are a powder.

Blend the pumpkin mixture in a food processor until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Put back on low heat but do not boil.

Serve immediately garnishing with toasted pumpkinseeds.
