Nhopi is a porridge like dish made mainly with pumpkin, shamba/winter squash, mealie meal, and peanut butter. Depending on the sweetness of the pumpkin, it can be a sweet dish but it is not eaten as a dessert. Sometimes people add sugar to it if the pumpkin is not sweet enough. My grandmother serves it for lunch with some vegetables like rape, or spinach. I like to eat it as a dessert.
