Pumpkin Pachadi


This different pachadi recipe I got from my favourite magazine Vanitha.I like all dishes from pumpkin generally ... Olan , Erusseri etc . So I gave it a try and this turned to be real good . One more pumpkin recipe I like. I never tried crushed mustard seeds in my recipes till now. But I noticed the slight flavour it gives to the dish...liked it. So here goes the recipe.

Things Needed :
Pumpkin cut small - 1 cup
Ginger chopped - 1 tbsp
shallots - 1/2 cup
crushed Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coconut milk 1 cup
Beaten curd - 1/2 cup or as per need

Curry leaves
Dry red chillies - 3
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Shallots -2 sliced or round cut

Heat oil. Saute chopped ginger in it until rawness goes.
Add cut shallots, saute till transparent. Toss in cut pumpkin.
Saute & cook until it turns bit transparent.
Add crushed mustard seeds, coconut milk , salt & cook.
After cooked, allow to cool down a bit. Pour beaten curd, mix , check for salt.
Now for seasoning heat oil in another pan, splutter mustard seeds, fry red chillies , shallots & curry leaves.Pour this seasoning over the pachadi. Serve with rice !!
