Instructions

  • 1. Heat oil in a wok or frying pan on medium heat. When hot, add cumin and fenugreek and allow to sizzle for 1 minute. Add ginger, stir and add onions. Allow onions to cook until they are translucent and start turning golden on edges, about 2 minutes. Add diced pumpkin, green chilies, salt, turmeric, red chili powder and coriander stems to the pan. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  • 2. Add the water, lower heat to simmer and cover. Allow to cook for 10 minutes covered, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Uncover; add sugar and cook for another two minutes, ensuring pumpkin is tender.
  • 4. Garnish with coriander leaves, serve hot with naan, chapatti or rice.

Critical Ingredients

If you are unable to get fenugreek seeds, leave them out. If green chilies are unavailable, you can just use chili powder as in the recipe, and drop the chilies.
