Aloo-kumro (pumpkin With Potato)

Bengalis have the tendency of putting potatoes in any kind of recipe. It feels as if potatoes are an integral part of all types of recipes. Everyday after coming back from office, its always a pain staking job to think what to cook for dinner. Last night I was only left out with a piece of pumpkin and some potatoes in my house. That was the moment when I ended up cooking this recipe.
