This is one of my favorite vegetables. It has slightly sweet coupled with spicy and tangy taste. Since the skin is very tough, I just scrap it lightly without removing the peel. You have to take care not to boil the pumpkin for a long time since it turns soft quite fast. Absolutely delicious, great to serve with rice, capati or naan.


3 cups pumpkin cubed
2 onions chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons tamarind paste
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seed
1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
2 tablespoons oil
salt to taste
curry leaf


* Add half cup water to the tamarind paste and strain the juice.

* Heat the oil, splutter fenugreek, curry leaves and cumin, add onion, fry until golden brown then add garlic, cook until fragrant. Add pumpkin, salt, chili powder, stir for 2 minutes, add tamarind juice, cover pot.

* Once pumpkin turns soft, remove from heat.

* Serve with rice, chapati or naan.
