Pumpkin Dry Curry | Kaddu Ki Sabzi North India Style
I got introduced to pumpkin after marriage, DH started to bring pumpkin/kaddu and he makes good curry/sabji in few styles. I wanted to blog this for so long and this time I decided to take few clicks before I dig-in . This is first time I made kumhara/kaddu in a very simple method, though the peeling of Indian pumpkin is difficult as the skin is hard but then it’s worth it. Sweet and sour this curry taste good with anything, we had with plain rice and dal, a simple and satisfying meal.
