Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin / Kodha nu Shak

My mom makes this subji amazing, we always had it with plain khichdi and it taste awesome. But after coming to USA I never made it and to my last visit to supermarket I saw one small block of yellow pumpkin was saying please take me home and I can not resist to buy it and it was dirt cheap too. It was perfect portion for me cause my dear husband won't even try it and above all I was missing my mom too. So all emotional things get together and this dish I made it.


1 cup chopped in cubes yellow pumpkin
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp Turmeric powder
2 tsp chili powder ( use more than you usually use to go with sweetness of jaggery)
2 tsp grated jaggery or as per your taste
salt to taste
2 tsp oil


Heat oil in pan. Add mustard seeds.
As soon as it crackles, add all powder masala and mix it well.
And add pumpkin and add enough water to cook pumpkin.
Add salt and cover it till pumpkin becomes soft.
When its almost cook, add jaggery and cook till it melt and well mixed in gravy.
Take it from heat and serve hot with khichdi or rice or roti.
