For the filling

  • Boil the rice in a pot of boiling water for 8 minutes. When ready, remove from heat, drain and set aside to cool.

  • Add pumpkin to a pot of boiling water and boil for 10-15 minutes, until it softens. When ready, transfer to a kitchen towel and wring to remove most of the water. Set it aside to cool.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the eggs, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Beat until mixture becomes fluffy.
  • When ready, add the melted butter, cooled rice, flour combined with the baking powder, the cooled pumpkin and pepper. Beat until all of the ingredients are completely combined.

To assemble

  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • Brush the baking pan with melted butter and spread 7 sheets of phyllo dough, drizzling each with melted butter when added.
  • Add the filling and add the remaining sheets of phyllo dough, drizzling each with butter just as before.
  • Turn the edges of the phyllo inward, press down on the surface of the pie with your hands and drizzle with melted butter.
  • Score the surface lightly with a knife in order to prepare the pieces that will be cut.
  • Bake for 70-80 minutes, until golden.
