Ingredients

Pumpkin/petha: petha or kaddu is the key ingredient in this recipe. kaddu is very nutritious and promotes weight loss.

I have used ripe yellow pumpkin if you have green pumpkin then you can chop it without peeling and use it in the sabzi.

Onion & green chilli: sliced onion and chopped green chilli just add a little flavour to the pumpkin. you can also use dried red chilli for more spicy flavour.

Other: it includes spices like degi laal mirch for little red colour, salt to taste and other spices.

you can also add dried fenugreek leaves or garam masala powder or ginger garlic paste to give it extra flavour.

How to make kaddu ki sabzi

  • In the Kadai or a deep bottom pan add mustard oil, sliced onion and chopped green chilli. we don’t have to saute the onion so add in salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder.
  • Mix all the spices with the onion and cook it on medium flame until the onion turns transparent, don’t overcook the onion or make it golden brown.
