poosanikai-thayir-pachadi-tamil-recipe

This is another of my dad’s favorite dish. He used to have a job which required him to travel a lot and so my mom would make this for lunch whenever he was in town. My dad had a job that involved lot of travel and his eating habits were a little chaos. He suffered from haemorrhoid / piles for some time and she used to make this for lunch everyday for him during that time. This is a very simple dish to make and very healthy. The entire dish can be put together in less than 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the mustard seeds, curry leaves, dried red chillies and asafoetida (hing). Let the mustard seeds splutter. Add in the diced pumpkin and salt. Add in a half a cup of water and boil for 5 minutes. Ash-gourd (white pumpkin) cooks very quickly. Switch off the flame.
