Pumpkin & Raw Banana Stir Fry


          This is a simple homemade stir fry dish with some leftover veggies that were sitting in my refrigerator. Here I made this curry with pumpkin and raw banana. Very easy and at the same time delicious, it has a minimum of spices. It can be enjoyed as a side dish with either rice or chapattis. You can also add any other veggie of your choice. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 250 gms, pumpkin, sliced
  • 2-3 raw bananas, peeled & sliced
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. kalonji (nigella seeds)
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  • 2 green chilies, slit
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • handful of coriander leaves, chopped






          Heat oil in a pan and temper with nigella seeds, garlic and asafoetida. Saute for a few seconds. Add the sliced pumpkin, raw banana and green chilies.

          Fry on a high flame for 2 minutes till it turns slightly brown. Now add the salt, turmeric powder and cumin powder.

          Mix well and cover. Cook on a medium flame by stirring at intervals till the veggies turns soft and cooked. When done, add the coriander leaves and toss well.

          Switch off the flame and transfer it to a serving dish. Serve as a side dish with either rice or chapattis.
