Quick and Super Yummy Curry

With their deliciously smooth and silky texture, pumpkins work well for making both sweet and savory dishes. This vegetable is great to incorporate into your cooking because they are low calorie and highly nutritious. They are rich in antioxidants and vitamins.

Yellow pumpkin sabzi (curry) has a mild sweet and spicy flavor. This recipe comes together quickly; I made it in only 20 minutes. Since it's a bit spicy, this sabzi pairs well with any type of Indian flatbread or steamed rice.
