Notes
If you are using canned pumpkin puree, then add the puree with coconut milk and water to the softened onions and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and cook further for 5 minutes, before pureeing in the blender. Rest steps remain the same.
You may make this soup in pressure cooker or crock pot as well.
