Kaddu Panch Phoran

Kaddu Panch Phoran (Pumpkin, Petha, Sitaphal)

Kaddu Panch Phoran (Pumpkin, Petha, Sitaphal) is a delicious dry sabji (vegetable). Pretty simple and easy to make this side dish can be served along with rice and dal or even goes well with roti or paratha. I love this sabji made in mustard oil with Paratha. The aroma you get from panch phoran (mix of five whole spices) is too good.

For this recipe I like to buy pumpkin that is not ripe and has a green tender skin as I cook this dish with the skin.
