How to Make Lal Bhoplya Chi Bhaji (Red Pumpkin Bhaji)

  • Cut the pumpkin into 2-inch cubes (they will shrink with cooking).
  • Heat the oil in a skillet or wok and add the mustard seeds, red chillies, turmeric and asafetida.
  • When the mustard seeds pop, stir in the fenugreek seeds. |Add and Sautee the pumpkin in the seasoning.
  • Cook covered for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Use a steel plate as a lid for the skillet.
  • Pour a little drinking water on it.
  • As this heats, it helps in cooking the pumpkin.
  • When you remove the lid to stir, you can pour in some hot water, if the bhaji requires moisture.
  • Once the pumpkin is half-cooked, add the jaggery and stir well.
  • Add the coconut to the bhaji just before the pumpkin is cooked through.
  • Stir once more and serve.
