Sour Pumpkin Curry

The sourness of the tamarind combines perfectly with sweet pumpkin. This is a delicious curry that is great with rice for a one dish meal.

Sour Pumpkin Curry

3 cups Pumpkin, cubed
1 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 tbsp Urad Dal
1 tbsp Peppercorn
1 tbsp Cumin Seeds
2 tbsp Coconut, grated
1 pinch Tamarind Concentrate
1/2 cup Moong Dal

For tempering – mustard seeds, asafetida, curry leaves

Cook the pumpkin with some water and turmeric and set aside. Separately cook the moong dal and set aside.

In a dry saute pan, roast the coriander seeds, urad dal, peppercorn, cumin and coconut. Grind to a coarse mixture.

Heat 2 cups of water in a saucepan. Add the ground ingredients and the pumpkin and bring to a boil. Add the cooked moong dal and let it combine together and cook for 6-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the saute pan with a little bit of oil and add the ingredients for tempering. When the mustard seeds start to splutter, add the tempering to the curry.

Remove from heat. Serve hot with rice or roti.

    Anu, you could send this to WTSIM hosted by cooksister. I am sure pumpkin in a spicy curry is not something that is common in other countries as in India!
