  • 500 grams pumpkin (peeled, deseeded, and cut into cubes)
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1-inch ginger (grated)
  • 2-3 green chillies (slit lengthwise)
  • 2 tomatoes (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Fresh coriander leaves (for garnish)

  2. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.
  3. Stir in the minced garlic, grated ginger, and green chillies. Sauté for another minute or until the raw aroma disappears.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, and salt. Cook the masala until the oil starts to separate from it.
