Dry roast the seeds and chillies separately: the seeds until golden and the chillies until glossy but take care they do not burn. Gently fry the onion, plantain, garlic and tomato and bring to the boil. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for 10 minutes. Add the water and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring constantly (preferably in a clay pot). Then blend the mixture in a Thermomix for 5 minutes. Next, cook for 3 hours to remove any acidity. Blend again and pass through a sieve. Put he mole back in the pot and season. Add water if necessary for the sauce to have a smooth but consistent texture.

To serve

Blanch the chilacayotes in boiling, salted water and add to the mole to cook for about 15 minutes or until soft but not falling apart.With the mandoline or slicer, slice the pumpkin and the chayote and Blanch in boiling water. Shape into rolls.On a plate, create a base of mole, chilacayotes and the pumpkin and chayote rolls and arrange the scorched tortillas and the basil shoots over it.
