Until my hubby told me, I never used to do pumpkin curry with skin. When the skin is tender you can prepare with it. At home, now this is often in our menu. Here in the market we get such fresh and small pumpkin. Looks so colourful, so just took few photos.
Now lets go to the recipe.
Sweet pumpkin/Mathan - 1/2 no(Med size)
Oil -2 tspns
Mustard - a pinch
Asafoetida/hing - a pinch
Turmeric - a pinch
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tspn(As per your taste)
Curry leaves - few
Salt as required
Perfect chunks by my hubby. Thank you:)
Wash, remove seeds and cut the vegetable in medium size chunks.
Heat a kadai, add oil, mustard, asafoetida. Let it crackle. Then add curry leaves and sauté.
Put the vegetable and mix.
Sprinkle a little water.
Add salt, turmeric and red chilli powder.
Close a lid and keep the flame on medium.
Once the vegetable is cooked, slightly mash and mix well.
Mathan | Sweet pumpkin Curry is ready.
You can have as a sidedish with hot rice /Sambar/Rasam/Curd Rice.
