Yellow Pumpkin Chutney

I tried making chutney from yellow pumpkin and it came out pretty well. This chutney can be taken with rotis, dosa or can be mixed with hot rice and have it.



Red Chilli – 4 to 5 of them. 

Note: if you want little more spice, then you can add extra chilli.

Urad Dal (broken) – 1tbsp

Channa Dal – 1 tbsp

Tamrind – a small round

Hing – a small piece

Oil for frying

Salt to taste

Yellow Pumpkin – 1/4 kg peeled and diced

For Tempering: you need mustard


Take a kadai or small non-stick pan, place it on a lighted gas stove, add little oil. When you see that the oil is little warm, add channa dal, urad dal, red chilli, hing and fry them. Ensure that you get a light brown color for dals after frying. Remove them from fire and let it cool.

Now in the same kadai, with whatever oil is remaining there, fry the pumpkin. Remove it from fire and let it cool.

Mix all the ingredients and grind them. Add salt according to your taste. Temper it with fried mustard.
