Kumro-alu bhate - Yellow pumpkin and potato mishmash

What you’ll need:
Potato: 1 medium
Pumpkin slice: any size
Onion :1 sliced
Chilly: 1 green or red dried
Cumin seeds: ½ tsp
Mustard or any other oil: 1 tsp
Salt: 1 pinch

How to:

1.      Skin the pumpkin if it is yellow. If the skin is soft and green, you can leave it on.

2.      Boil the potato and the pumpkin. You can also put it inside your rice pot. That’s how it was done by my mother (all our mothers), and that' how the name came by. Since I cook my rice in the microwave I boil them separately.

3.      Skin the potato.

4.      Fry the cumin seeds, chilly and sliced onion in the oil, and pour the entire thing on the boiled veggies, add salt and mash.


Looks great and tastes absolutely delicious. Just try it out. You can substitute the pumpkin with pointed gourds/ eggs/ brinjals – tastes great any which ways.
