Pumpkin stuffed with undercooked rice, fresh fruit, sour-dried fruits, chopped walnuts. You can add honey or sugar to the filling and season it with cinnamon.
The walls of the pumpkin should be rubbed with butter from the inside and more butter should be added on the top. The core is not filled to the brim, as it increases in volume during cooking. Cover the pumpkin head with a cut lid and put it in the oven.
