Stir fries make a great sidedish for rice or roti. I make different combination of them very often. This one is a quick sidedish you can make in under 30 mins. It uses a combination of pumpkin and onion and finally the whole thing is tossed with dessicated coconut.
Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 15 mins
Onion – 1 large chopped finely
Pumpkin – 4 cups peeled and chopped finely
Oil – 2 tblspn
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Chilli powder – 2 tsp
Dessiccated Coconut – 1 cup
Heat oil in a kadai, add in onions and pumpkin and toss well. Season with salt and turmeric powder.
Now mix this well and cook on a low heat covered for 5 to 8 mins till pumpkin is cooked.
Add in chilli powder and mix well.
Add in desiccated coconut and toss well. Cook this on high heat for 5 mins so the coconut coats the pumpkin well.
