Khatta Meetha Kaddu (Sweet & Sour Pumpkin Curry)



Kaddu ki sabzi or pumpkin curry is a north Indian dish. This is my favorite veggie and it tastes heaven with hot pooris. Pumpkin is not liked by many people but this recipe will surely make them like it. The tanginess in the curry comes from raw mango powder and sweetness from sugar. This dish is very popular in UP,India. Kaddu is also called kashiphal or sita phal in India. It’s similar to squash.
