Yellow Pumpkin with Cashewnuts and Coconut



This is a dish that mom makes often at home. A typical mallu dish :). I love it coz its so simple. The flavors are mild and you can taste each and every ingredient in the dish.

Ingredients:
300 gm yellow pumpkin
1/3 cup cashew nuts
45-50 gm coconut, grated
1 heaping tsp cumin seeds
2 green chillies or to taste
salt to taste
8-10 curry leaves
coconut oil to drizzle

Method:
Grind the coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies to a smooth paste adding little water.
Cut the pumpkin into small pieces. Cook adding some salt and very little water (just sprinkle about two handfuls of water into the pan).
When almost done, add the cashews and cook for a few more minutes. 
Add the coconut paste and curry leaves. Mix gently and cook for 3-4mins. Check seasonings.
Remove from heat and drizzle some coconut oil. Mix before serving.
