Here’s yet another interesting combination of vegetables. I heard about this combination from my friend Ujwal. Apparently it’s a famous and traditional combination in Western Indian cuisine. It’s a smart idea to mix a sweetish vegetable with a slightly bitter vegetable to balance the taste. I added a twist to it by including some boiled peanuts to make it more wholesome. Cooks in a jiffy!
Pumpkin: 1.5 cups (cut into cubes)
Gavar: 1 cup (cut into small pieces)
Peanuts: ¼ cup (soaked)
Turmeric: ¼ tsp
Chilli powder: ½ tsp
Tamarind pulp: 1 tsp
Coriander powder: ½ tsp
Cumin powder: ½ tsp
Rock salt: to taste
Coriander leaves: 1 tbsp (chopped)
Cumin Seeds ½ Tsp
Soak peanuts for at least 4 hours.
Steam pumpkin and gavar until cooked. Gavar takes a little longer so better to steam them separately.
Boil the soaked peanuts with salt until cooked.
Heat a pan and add cumin seeds, when it is slightly browned add the steamed vegetables, boiled peanuts, spices, salt and tamarind pulp and combine well.
Sprinkle a little water and cover and cook for 2 minutes.
Serve garnished with coriander leaves. Best eaten with flat breads.
