This is a savory pumpkin recipe that will totally blow you away with all the different layers of delicious flavors. This does not require more difficult ingredients but can be prepared with readily available ingredients in your kitchen. This goes well with boiled rice.
After about five minutes, add the cooked and smashed Pumpkin into this mix along with 1 – 2 cups of water and stir it well.
Then add the Coconutmilk and Tamarind Juice also into this gravy (Pumpkin Masala Curry) and stir it again.
Heat Oil in a frying pan, burst Mustard seeds in the hot oil and then add Red Chilli pieces, Curry leaves (if necessary, can add some Onion pieces also) and when colour of these ingredients turn into golden/brown, add it into the Curry.
Pumpkin (Mathanga) Masala Curry is ready. This can serve as a side dish for Chappathi/Poori/cooked Rice.
Myself, Sobha Kesavan, a retired Accountant in a MNC based in Delhi, where I was staying for 26 years. Afterwards, moved to Bangalore and stayed there for about 4 years and then shifted to my native place ( in Thrissur district), Kerala, along with my husband. My two sons and both daughters-in-law are working out of Kerala as Software Engineers.
I have immense passion for gardening and have been doing it since my stay in Delhi and most of
the ingredients (vegetables) used in my recipes are home grown. I am interested in cooking mostly North Indian and South Indian cuisines. The recipes shared in pachakam.com from my end would definitely tickle your taste buds.
I will be always looking forward for your valuable feedbacks or suggestions as there is always room for improvement.
