Kaddu ki Sabzi - Indian style Pumpkin Recipe

Hello foodies,

Today I am sharing a traditional recipe of pumpkin/kaddu with you all. Generally cooked during the festivities and eaten with pooris/bedmis this humble recipe has been my favorite since my childhood.  I have met two types of people, those who are in love with the kaddu/those who hate kaddu.

I had made this recipe recently and decided to share the same with you guys (hoping that some of you would be kaddu lovers). So, let's get cooking...
