Kaddu ki sabzi|Pumpkin curry | Pumpkin sabzi recipe – North Indian style pumpkin dry curry recipe, with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Usually, we South Indians make Sambar or vatha kuzhambu or paal kootu using yellow pumpkin. My mom makes a pumpkin curry for Pongal festival, we call it is parangikkai curry. That tastes more like a halwa and we add jaggery and coconut in that.

I have many North Indian friends and I have seen them making this Kaddu ki sabzi during winter. Though we get pumpkins throughout the year, in winter we get a lot. Though I have heard from many friends about this sabzi, I personally never tried it or even tasted it.

Yesterday during my visit to the local wet market, saw this tiny Japanese variety, Kabocha squash. I got so attracted by its cuteness, decided to make this Kaddu ki sabzi. It tasted so yummy and it was just like potato curry. No one at home could make out it was made using yellow pumpkin.

I made this without the addition of garlic and tomato. You can add finely chopped tomatoes to this dry curry.
