Here’s what you do:

Add pumpkin, sweet potato and water. Cover the pan with lid, reduce the heat and cook for 10-15 minutes. Stir few times, if all water evaporated, add some more.
Add tamarind source, sugar, salt and lime juice. Boil for 10-15 more minutes, check, if vegetables are soft. If ready add chopped fresh coriander and coconut cream. Bring it to boil and leave to cool down.
When its not boiling hot anymore are the mixture to blender or food processor and blend it till smooth.
