Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin slices

    1/2 tsp turmeric

    Salt as required

    Water as required

    1/2 cup grated coconut

    1/2 tsp turmeric powder

    2 cloves garlic

    1/2 tsp cumin seeds

    3 - 4 green chillies

    1/4 tsp pepper powder


    For the tempering:

    1/4 cup grated coconut

    2 tsp oil

    1/2 tsp mustard seeds

    4 red chillies

    1 sprig curry leaves

Method

Blend grated coconut along with garlic, cumin seeds, green chillies, turmeric powder and pepper powder into a fine paste. Keep it aside.

Cut pumpkin into small cubes and boil them. Add turmeric powder and salt before cooking. Mash the cooked pumpkin pieces with a spatula. You can also leave few cubes instead of mashing the whole mix.

Now add the blended coconut paste to the pumpkin mash and let it simmer on a medium flame.

In another pan, heat two tsp of oil and add mustard seeds. Just when they start to splutter, add red chillies and curry leaves. Now finally add the grated coconut. Fry it until the coconut turns brownish in color. Now mix it in the erissery.

Serve.
