  • 1 big or 2 small - Pumpkin

  • Garlic (use fresh chopped Garlic cloves; use about 5 medium sized cloves; chop them into very little pieces)

How to Make Jhat Pat Squash Bhaji

  • If using a pumpkin, dice the pumpkin first into medium sized pieces.
  • Do not make the pieces too small.
  • If using a squash, just put the squash in the microwave for about 5-6 minutes with the skin on.
  • This will soften the squash and help you cut it easily.
  • Then dice the squash.
  • It is good to have the skin on as it is full of nutrients.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  • Set it at medium to medium high heat.
  • Add to this the chopped garlic pieces and the onions and saute till the aroma starts coming and the onions are slightly cooked.
  • Then add the diced squash pieces, the turmeric, the green chillies, and salt.
  • Reduce the heat a little. Stir and saute, and then cover the pan with a lid (to retain the food flavours) and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Do not add water to this dish.
  • Serve hot with rice or chapatti.
