Before going to the recipe, I would like to share a small personal note.These vegetables are from my small organic kitchen garden. I felt so happy that my efforts are fruitful and I could harvest toxic free vegetables. I did not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides but just compost from my own kitchen and garden waste. I am posting this picture as it might inspire somebody out there. Let us try not to waste kitchen, garden waste, instead convert them into rich manure.
1.Peel,chop pumpkin into cubes and cook in little water adding salt and turmeric powder. Do not pressure cook as it will become mushy.
2.Heat a tsp of oil, fry pepper, red chilli and peanuts nicely and grind it along with grated coconut. Keep it aside.
3.Blanch tomatoes and take tomato puree.
4.Pressure cook toor/tur dal till soft.
Keep everything ready, now to the method.
Heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add onion, ginger, curry leaves and fry until onion turns transparent.
Then add the cooked pumpkin, ground paste, tomato puree, cooked dal, needed salt, mix well and cook on low flame until everything gets blended well.
Serve it with rice or as a side dish for chapati. Enjoy the health benefits of this humble vegetable.
