Brown the meat and add about 1 and 1/2 cups water. Add tomato paste, turmeric, cinnamon, saffron and salt and pepper and sauteed onion. Cook covered ata simmer for about 1 and 1/2 to two hours. Meat should be tender and nearly falling apart stage. You may need to add water during cooking but you shouldnt end up with more than the stated amount. You dont want a watery stew. In the meantime, seed the pumpkin and slice into 2X2 inch pieces and peel. Brown on both sides in corn oil. The pumpkin should become brown in some places and somewhat flexible but not totally cooked. Add to meat and cook covered an additional 20-30 minutes until tender but not falling apart. A fork should go into the pumpkin easily but not break it up. Add the prunes the last 5 minutes of cooking. They shouldnt really cook too much but should get warm. Serve over hot basmatic rice. Note on pumpkin: ---------------- Baking pumpkins are the best since they are sweeter and less stringy. I have used jack o lantern pumpkins when feeling frugal and the dish was still good. You want about twice the volume of meat in peeled pumpkin slices.
