Kerala Style Pumpkin curry

Hi Readers,

This is my first trial with Kerala style dish. I was bit excited to try this dish after finding the recipe online. But, I feared if it would really taste good. I must say this dish turned out beautifully. I have modified the original Kerala dish a little bit. Hope, you would try my version and would like it.

Ingredients :- 250 gm yellow pumpkin
                     100 ml coconut milk
                     1 potato
                     1 tsp cumin seeds
                     1 tsp mustard seeds
                     1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
                     10- 15 curry leaves
                     2 red chili
                     1 tsp oil
                     1 cup water
                     1/2 tsp turmeric powder
                      salt to taste
                     1/2 tsp asafoetida

Method :- Was, and peel & remove pumpkin skin and potato skin. Cut into cubes. In a pan heat water and add the pumpkin and potato cubes on to it. Cover and cook till it starts boiling. Cook in medium flame. Uncover and smash a few cubes of pumpkin and potato using the back of spatula. Add coconut milk, salt and turmeric powder to the mixture and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from flame. In another pan, heat oil, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds. When it starts to splutter, add red chili, curry leaves and asafoetida to it. Add this splutter mixture to the curry, mix and serve hot with plain rice.
