Bharta is a slightly mushy vegetable-based dish that tastes heavenly when had with steaming hot rice, or Indian breads too. While you might have surely tasted the famous Baingan Bharta, here is something new for you to try. A delicious bharta made of juicy red pumpkins! The mild sweetness of the pumpkins is beautifully balanced by a mixture of seeds and spice powders, especially the tangy dry mango powder. Serve the Kaddu ka Bharta fresh off the stove, garnished with peppy coriander.
- Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, nigella seeds and fenugreek seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the onions and sauté till they turn translucent.
- Add the pumpkin, asafoetida, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt with ½ cup of water and pressure cook for 2 to 3 whistles so that the pumpkin becomes mushy.
- Add the amchur and salt and mix well. Simmer till the oil separates from the pumpkin.
- Serve hot, garnished with the coriander.
