Pumpkin Pappu

Sometimes we doesnt need a fabulous spread of irresistible dishes to fulfil our craving for foods.Even a simple dal can satisfy your tastebuds,once a while i do dals with veggies just to feed easily everyone at home. Apart from me, none at home like stir fries with pumpkin so if i make stir fries, i have to finish them alone even my better half wont help me to finish pumpkin stir fry, i know when i bought a huge slice of pumpkin, i'll be making some pappu with them.

Yesterday i quickly prepared this super comforting pappu for our lunch and served with a spicy potato roast,everyone enjoyed having this easy breezy pappu,seriously this mildly sweet pappu is one of our recent family favourite. Sending this fingerlicking pappu to Kalyani's Magic Mingle.

2cups Pumpkin (cubed)
1cup Toor dal
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Curry leaves

Pressure the cubed pumpkin pieces,toordal with turmeric powder upto three whistles.

Meanwhile heat enough ghee, add the mustard seeds,urad dal,slit opened green chillies,asafoetida powder and curry leaves and fry for few seconds.

Now open the pressure cooker,mash the cooked dal and pumpkin nicely add the tempered spices and salt as per need.

Bring boil and put off the stove.

Serve hot with rice.
