    Thanks so much for your comment, Nisa. We're sure glad to hear from our fans in Indonesia. Although they don't taste exactly the same, sesame seeds would be a great substitute for pumpkin seeds in this recipe. Since sesame seeds are intense in flavor we recommend you use only half the amount called for in the recipe. Let us know if this tip helped!
