Pumpkin Recipe

Before preparing this recipe, I did not know that pumpkin can be made into a tasty dish. Try this and am sure you will agree with me. This is again a microwave oven recipe


  • 750gms pumpkin – peeled & cut
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • A pinch of hing (asafoetida) powder
  • 1 tsp methi seed
  • 2 tsp cumin seed
  • 1 tbsp thinly sliced ginger
  • 4 green chili
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp tamarind pulp
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Take oil in a microwave safe bowl and add hing, methi, cumin seeds and ginger. Heat it covered at MicroHi (MHi) for 3 mins. Now add the pumpkin along with green chili, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and sugar. Mix it well and cook covered for 5 mins at MHi. Now stir and cook covered at 70% power for 15 mins with stirring once in between. Pumpkin should be soft by now. If not, add a little water and cook for some more time at 70% power. Now add the tamarind pulp and cook covered at 30% for 5 mins. Garnish with the chopped coriander leaves and serve.

    1. If you want to prepare this in pressure cooker it’ll take more time as you need to saute the ingredients very well, which will take some time. And also in microwave oven I used very less amount of oil 🙂
