Kaddu Ki Sabzi is a light and simple recipe where pumpkin pieces are cooked along with potatoes thoroughly in a variety of masalas.

The tempering of the Panch Phoran and green chilies add a unique flavour to it. This is a delicious recipe can be made on regular days and also during festivals along with poories/puries. Kaddu Ki Sabzi is also known as Petha Sabzi.

This recipe goes well with pooris but Kaddu Ki Sabzi can also be had with Ajwain Paranthas or Plain Paranthas. You can add a little amchur powder for a tangy taste if you want it that way.

It’s always better to serve Seetaphal Ki Sabzi hot and enjoy it for a family dinner, breakfast, or lunch/brunch. Kaddu Ki Sabzi is a hot favourite at my place and is thoroughly enjoyed by one and all.

Using foodalltime garam masala and Panch Phoran lends it its unique taste. You can alternatively also use just cumin seeds for tempering.

Do You Know Your Pumpkin?

Pumpkins, in general, feature orange or yellow exterior skin colour; however, some varieties can exhibit dark to pale green, brown, white, red, and grey.

Yellow-orange pigments largely influence their colour characteristics in their skin and pulp. Its thick rind is smooth with light, vertical ribs.

In structure, the fruit features golden-yellow to orange flesh depending upon the pigments in it. The fruit has a hollow centre, with numerous small, off-white coloured seeds interspersed in a net-like structure.

Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of protein, minerals, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids.

In the Indian subcontinent where it is popular as “kaddu कद्दू or sitaphal सीताफल,” pumpkin is used in the preparation of “sabzi,” sweet dishes (halwa), desserts, soups, curries, etc. 

Golden nugget pumpkins कद्दू are used to make wonderful soufflés, stuffing, soups, etc.

Pumpkins can be readily available in the market year around. Buy completely developed, whole pumpkin fruit instead of its sections.

Look for mature fruit that features a fine woody note on tapping, heavy in hand, and stout stem. Avoid the one with wrinkled surface, cuts, and bruises.

Once at home, ripe, mature pumpkin may be stored for many weeks to come under cool, well-ventilated place at room temperature.

However, cut sections should be placed inside the refrigerator where it can keep well for a few days.
