Pumpkin Stir Fry(Kaddu Ki Subzi)

Pumpkin is a low calorie vegetable which is high in antioxidants and vitamins A,C and E.Stir fried pumpkin is an interesting and easy to make recipe.I have used garlic and onions along with some spices to make it more nutritious.Pumpkin is a fruit readily available in the market year around and I think it should be included in kid's diet as a super-food.

Pumpkin-250 gms
Garlic-2-3 cloves,chopped and crushed
Onion-1 small,finely chopped
Dry Red chilli-1
Mustard seeds-1/4 teaspoon
Fenugreek seeds-4-5 seeds
Asafoetida-a generous pinch
Turmeric powder-1/4 teaspoon
Green coriander leaves-2 teaspoons
Salt to taste
Oil-2 teaspoons

-Wash and cut the pumpkin into small chunks.You can keep the skin if you want.
-Take a pan and heat oil and add the mustard seeds,chilli and asafoetida.
-Immediately add the chopped onions and stir fry for 2 minutes.
