How to make Pumpkin Kalasu

  1. Soak chickpeas in water for 4-5 hours.
  2. Pressure cook soaked chickpea.
  3. Cook pumpkin with little water & mix with cooked chickpea. Make sure that pumpkin pieces are not overcooked.
  4. Grind coconut, green chillies, cumin seeds,turmeric powder , pinch of salt & tamarind to smooth paste with little water.
  5. Add the coconut paste to cooked pumpkin, add chickpeas & mix well.
  6. Add jaggery & salt according to your taste. Bring to boil.
  7. Heat oil in pan, when mustard seeds start spluttering, add curry leaves. Add this tempering to sweet pumpkin curry.

My Tip:

Cook pumpkin with little care, since pumpkins are so soft once cooked . They will just get mashed up, if over cooked. Even white chickpea can be used. The curry is on little sweeter side , hence only 1 or 2 chillies are used.
