Ingredients:

Pumpkin, peeled, cubed - 400g
 
 Garlic Clove, crushed - 1 tsp
 
 Fresh Ginger, grated - 1 tsp
 
 Fresh Chillies, minced - 1 (or to taste)
 
 Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
 
 Asafoetida - pinch
 
 Fenugreek Seeds - 10
 
 Ground Coriander - 1 tsp
 
 Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
 
 Garam Masala - 2 tsps
 
 Chilli Powder - to taste
 
 Groundnut Oil - 3 tbsp
 
 Black Pepper - to taste
 
 Tomato Puree - 1 tbsp
 
 Salt - to taste
 
 Jaggery - to taste
 
 Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
 
 Onions, sliced - 200g
 
 Fresh Coriander - 2 tbsps to garnish
 

Method:

• In a skillet, heat oil and add the asafoetida, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, cumin seeds and fry until the mustard seeds pop. Add the onions and fry until lightly golden.

• Add the fresh chilli, ginger and garlic and stir.

• Add the remaining spices and saute on low heat for about 2 minutes stirring constantly. Add the pumpkin and stir to coat in the spices.

• Add the tomato puree, jaggery and salt and enough water to barely cover the pumpkin.

• Cover and cook over a low heat until the pumpkin is just tender (about 15 minutes). It should still be firm and not mushy. Check every few minutes and add more water if required, a little at a time.

• Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot, with roti.
