Hara Kaddu Sabji (Green Pumpkin Curry)

This simple dish tastes great with hot parathas (pan-fried Indian flatbread). Team with a dal and you've got a terrific vegetarian meal.

  • 1 pound green pumpkin chopped in small cubes
  • 1 tsp methi (fenugreek) seeds
  • Pinch of asafetida
  • 1 dry whole red chili
  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp amchur powder (dry mango powder)
  • 2-3 green chilies finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp mustard oil

  • Heat the oil in a pan and add asafetida, whole dry red chilies and methi seeds.
  • When the seeds begin to splutter, add the garlic and stir-fry till brown.
  • Add pumpkin and fry for a minute. Add salt, chili powder, turmeric and stir to mix well.
  • Add the green chilies and cook covered till pumpkin is cooked. Mix in amchoor powder.
  • Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.
