Guru poornima is actually a festival to celebrate our gurus. SO the next 2 recipes that I am posting here is a token of respect for my gurus in cooking which is non other than my MOM and MIL.

Today's recipe is from my moms cuisine. Honestly I haven't seen anyone else making this until today. Its a simple stir-fry with the Indian pumpkin - known as mathan.

Ingredients : 

Pumpkin : 1 cup (cleaned and chopped into small cubes)
Shallots /Small onion : 4-5 nos (crushed)
Turmeric Powder : 1/4 tsp
Crushed Chilly flakes : 1 tsp
Grated Coconut : 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds : 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves : 1 sprig
Coconut oil : 1 tbsp
Salt to taste


  • Heat coconut oil in the pan and splutter mustard seeds.
  • Add crushed shallots, crushed chilly flakes, curry leaves  and saute until shallots turns golden  brown.
  • Now add the grated coconut and saute for few seconds.
  • Add the chopped pumpkin, turmeric powder and salt along with 1/2 cup of water.
  • Cook over low flame till its done. 
  • Remove from fire and serve hot with steamed rice and Enjoy!!

  • Shallots can be avoided.
  • Do not over-cook the pumpkin and make it mushy. Better to cook in an open tava.
