Stir fried pumpkin

I managed to make two dishes with the pumpkin wedge that i picked up for this month's Magic Mingle.I'm glad i could do that.

My daughter was munching the raw pumpkin telling me it smells like watermelon :) I was glad some vegetable is going in as she's only starting to have her share of veggies.Its a long tough fight with vegetables and her!

Since we have chapatis/indian flat bread for our dinner invariably everyday, I am tempted to try out with many side dishes/gravies for dinner.This side dish is so easy i think its faster than instant noodles!Thats how fast this vegetable cooks!

Preparation time : 30 mins

You need

Chopped pumpkin 2 cups 
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds/jeera 1tsp
Green chillies 1slit at the top
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp (or more as you need)
Oil 2 tsp
  • Heat oil in the pan, add oil and jeera and let it pop.Now add the green chillies and fry it well.
  • Add the pumpkin pieces and stir it in the oil.Add the salt and red chilli powder and stir well.
  • Cook until the pumpkin pieces go soft.

  • Serve the sabji hot with chapatis.
