Real quick pumpkin curry!!
Dear friends of the internet, please gather around to witness an easy pumpkin curry that has no coconut and lentils. But the flavors are too overwhelming honestly. And I couldn’t resist to taste it just when it was still on stove bubbling and boiling. This yellow gold pumpkin veggie is good enough to be in this recipe because it tastes slightly sweet. Besides, the veggie is so soft that it needs minimum of minimum time to cook. The grated ginger and fennel seeds make this pumpkin curry a flavor bomb and they perfectly match with the texture and taste of veggie.
The golden yellow pumpkin with tough skin wasn’t my kind of veggie in my growing up years. I shared a love and hate relationship with it. This is a kind of veggie which I loved based on what is cooked out of it. I like the taste of sweet pumpkin idli where as pumpkin curry using coconut fail to even salivate me. So basically this veggie can precariously fall under either “like” or “dislike” list of my favorite vegetables.
But after tasting this pumpkin curry which is little sour and sweet can probably tempt me to buy the veggie more often. And if you check your pantry right at this moment, you must be having all the ingredients available right there. By saying this, I assume you do keep stock of some fennel seeds in your kitchen. Because you cannot skip this particular ingredient which makes lot of difference taste-wise. The chunks of pumpkin in this curry absorb the tang from tamarind and flavors from spices and herbs. It accompanies hot steamed rice very well and you would end up licking your fingers for sure. So next time when you buy this veggie, try it yourself to believe.
