A new yummy veggie post...Pumpkin Bharta / Kaddu Bharta!!

I have to figure out new ways to make my family eat vegetables,so in an effort to try something nice yet healthy too I come up with new recipes which would be loved by not only my family but by all.

After my last successful attempt to make Onion/Pyaz ka Bharta, this time I though lets try something with Pumpkin too.
I love some traditional pumpkin Goan recipes which my mom used to make for me. But Some of them involve dried fish to be added,so could not consume it on days, which we observe as vegetarian.

This is a very quick and easy to make recipe and liked by all.
Try this and Enjoy!!
