Pumpkin Prawns

This is a family recipe, which we really relish with a plateful of rice. Sweet pumpkins are cooked and mashed with masalas, then there are bits of prawns, which provides a nice texture. 


  • Prawns - 300 gm, shelled and deveined
  • Pumpkin - a wedge, chopped into bite size pieces
  • Potato - 1, optional
  • Onion - 2, chopped, 1, made into paste
  • Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
  • Green chilli - as per taste
  • Salt, turmeric, kashmiri chilli powder
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Mustard oil

Marinate the prawns with a pinch of salt and turmeric. Then fry them a little and keep aside.

In the same pan, add chopped onion, when they turned brown, add the ground onion and fry well.

Add the garlic paste along with chopped green chilli and saute well.

Next goes all the ground masalas with a sprinkle of water.

When masalas are sauteed well, add the cubed pumpkin and mix well with the masalas.

Add a sprinkle of water and then cook covered till the pumpkins are cooked well.

When pumpkins are almost mashed, and oil is coming out, add the fried prawns. 

Continue cooking till the prawns are cooked through and all ingredients are mixed well. Sprinkle a spoonful of sugar. Check the salt. 

Serve hot garnished with chopped coriander.
