Pumpkin curry


I usually cook very simple curry with pumpkin. Actually I tried many times to cook some delicious curry with pumpkin, but I always failed to do the same. So, I gave up my desire to cook a delicious one. Instead of that I opted to cook simple one. Till date I’m cooking the same. One of friends wanted to know the recipe of that curry. Anyway I’m putting the recipe. Let see how you like my recipe.
Ingredients:
3 cups cubed pumpkin
2 cups cubed potato (3 medium sized potatoes are sufficient)
1 tsp paanch phoron (a mixture of 5 different spices, very popular among Bengalis. They use it in their cooking almost always. You can get in any Indian store around the world).
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp ginger paste
1 small tomato
1 tsp kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
pinch of turmeric powder
2tbsp of oil( you can use more oil. The more you oil, the curry will more tasty. )
Salt to taste
Method:
Heat oil in a heavy bottom wok, and sauté the pumpkin and potato cubes separately in it. Keep them aside. Heat one tbsp of oil, add paanch phoron. When the spices start crackle, add ginger paste. Sauté for few second, and add the chopped tomato, and stir continuously. When the tomato will take a paste like texture, add pumpkin and potato. Stir for 1 minute. Add all the spices except kasuri methi including salt and turmeric powder. Stir for one minute, and cover the wok. Let it fry for few minutes. Add 1 ½ cup of water and bring it to boil. Add the kasuri methi. Cover the wok and keep in medium flame for 10-15 minutes or until the curry takes a creamy texture. It tastes best with luchi or paratha.
Here is served with luchi.
