Cook pumpkin with turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt. (use less water)
Now add the pressure cooked cow peas to the pumpkin. Mash everything slightly.
Add the ground coconut paste and boil for a few minutes. Check of salt.
Heat 2 tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add red chilli and curry leaves. Add this seasoning to the erissery.
This curry can be prepared dry or semi solid consistency.
