Kumror Chenchki (Pumpkin and potato stir fry)

Only the knife knows what goes on in the heart of a pumpkin.

Simone Schwarz-Bart

This is adapted from Preeoccupied though I have made some changes to it.

Pumpkin-250 gms
Green chillies-2
Red chillies-2
Chilli powder-1tsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Salt as per taste
Water-1/2 cup

Peel and cut the pumpkin and potato into thin long slices.

Now add oil to a kadhai or pan.Splutter mustard seeds.Add the slit green and red chillies.Then add the finely sliced pumpkin and potatoes.Sprinkle the turmeric,chilli powder and salt,give a stir and pour in the water.Close the lid and let it cook for 5 mins.Now leave the lid open for the water to evaporate.

Best served with puri though I served with rice and pickle!!!!!!!!!
* The original recipe did not add any powdered spices and added a tsp of sugar.
