Pumpkin With Flaxseed


Welcome again friends to my cosy corner. Today I am going to make a very healthy, sumptuous and equally tasty curry of Pumpkin With Flaxseed. This recipe has two ingredients namely pumpkin which is a boon for the heart and flax seed which reduces bad cholesterol drastically. It combines pure health and taste and has a meagre amount of oil which can be omitted also for people with heart problems or cholesterol. So let us start with it:—


  1. Green fresh finely chopped pumpkin -1
  2. Finely chopped Radish – 1
  3. Flaxseed powder (made after roasting together flax seed,1 dry red chilly and 1 tsp coriander seeds)-3 tbsp.
  4. Salt – According to taste.
  5. Turmeric powder -1 tsp.
  6. Dry mango powder – 1 tbsp.

For tempering:– 1.Five spice – 1 tsp.

2.Bay leaf -2

3. Asafoetida or Hing -A pinch.

4. Dry red chilly – 2

For garnishing-Chopped green chilly.

Chopped coriander.


Step 1

Wash and peel the skin of pumpkin. Similarly, wash and peel the radish. Cut both of them very finely and pressure cook them as it will save your time and energy. When it is cooked drain out the excess water but keep some of it for use in the curry.

Step 2 

Heat a heavy-bottom kadhai and add the given amounts of five spice, red chilly, asafoetida, mustard oil and let them splutter. But take care not to burn the tempering.

Step 3

Now to the kadhai add boiled pumpkin, radish, salt, turmeric powder and saute it for a while.

Step 4

When the pumpkin is slightly mashed add roasted and powdered flax seed which has to be initially roasted together with 1 dry red chilly and 1 tsp coriander seeds and then powdered, dry mango powder and saute it again for five minutes. It will be a semi-dry curry so don’t dry out all the water from it.

Step 5 

The pumpkin flaxseed tasty curry is ready. Garnish it with chopped green chillies and coriander.

Friends do try this recipe at home. It can be had with rice, dal, dosai, rotis, paranthas. It is a very healthy preparation for people with heart problem or diabetes. It has no spice, all the taste and all health, so go ahead and try it in your homes. I am sure you will like it. Say yes to good health with this curry. Till then happy cooking, healthy living!!!
