Aloo Aur Kaddu Ki Sabzi (potatoes Cooked With Pumpkin)
This curry is a fusion between the Mathura ke dubki wale aloo and sweet and sour pumpkin curry. I find pumpkin curry as such quite sweet but I have been mulling over how to do a pumpkin curry for pooris. So after a lot of recipe hunt I decided to go ahead and do a curry of my own. It has few elements borrowed from the sattvic style of cooking my friend does, but I did add an onion because I could not resist it. But her style of cooking pumpkin had fenugreek seeds, jaggery, asafoetida and dried mango powder as key ingredients. I guess I retained that style but modified the sweetness part with the help of tomatoes. We had this curry with palak pooris and onion pickle. The recipes of both these dishes are on my page so try it out; it is an exciting combo for any meal.
