Red Pumpkin Chutney

Updated on April 3, 2015

Pumpkin recipe

Pumpkins, besides reminding us of Halloween, can be used as a vegetable for some tasty dishes and desserts.

This is an utterly simple recipe with a subtle sweet sour taste that goes well with rice eaters. For those who want to eat it with Indian flat bread (roti) it would be an unconventional but welcome change. There are very few ingredients required and you will easily find them in any store.
