Pumpkin Stir Fry

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

What do you do when you have no veggies but pumpkin?
In my place no one eats pumpkin, especially the red one. I just do not know why. I have tried all sorts of way making this veggie in sambhar, a veggie. No sir… they all turn up their noses at it and the poor gourd has become quite upset.
So coming back to the original question what to cook? I have only pumpkin.
Now, traditionally pumpkin is not cooked with onion and garlic at home. But I decided that if I need to get all to eat I need to make it with garlic and onion.
After all I need to a vegetable on the table. Here is what I did, by no means unique but it is helping to stop thinking in a box.

3 cups of pumpkin, peeled cubed
2 onions, chopped fine
2 tomatoes, chopped fine
3 flakes garlic, crushed
1 tsp ginger paste
½ tsp garam masala
1 tsp red chili powder (adjust as per taste)
½ tsp turmeric
Mustard seeds
Coriander for garnishing
1.  Heat the oil and add the mustard when it splutters add the garlic and ginger. Sauté till the raw smell goes away.
2.  Add the onions and fry till translucent.
3.  Add the tomatoes and the pumpkin, garam masala, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt. Mix well.
4.  Cook till done serve hot with chapattis or rice.
