minty pumpkin



i found a huge pumpkin in the market the other day...the flesh was deep yellow and the skin very fresh green.......bought a slice immediately and roasted this way to get the perfect flavor of healthy pumpkin...

it was simple as i roasted it in a flat bottomed frying pan as tossing the long fingers of pumpkin was easy this way.....a tsp of extra virgin olive oil , 1/2 tsp of red chilly powder , 1/2 tsp of dried mint powder , salt to taste and a tsp of amchoor powder is needed to roast about 200 gm of pumpkin fingers...........

first i tossed everything except amchoor powder, together and let it rest for about 15 minuts....

heat another tsp of olive oil in the pan and throw in the marinated pumpkin fingers......on medium heat let it brown on all sides ......toss to turn or use a fork to turn them .......

add amchoor when cooked n browned but not mashed.......toss and serve immediately as a side...

oven roasted version would be better definitely.....it's a matter of convenience though....
