Bharta is a slightly mushy vegetable-based dish that tastes heavenly when had with steaming hot rice, or Indian breads too. While you might have surely tasted the famous Baingan Bharta, here is something new for you to try. A delicious bharta made of juicy red pumpkins! The mild sweetness of the pumpkins is beautifully balanced by a mixture of seeds and spice powders, especially the tangy dry mango powder. Serve the Kaddu ka Bharta fresh off the stove, garnished with peppy coriander.

Unusual bharta made using Kaddu. I am sure pumpkin lovers will enjoy it. It tastes sweet and salty at the same time.

Red pumpkin tastes great this way. Nice tangy flavor comes from dry Mango powder. Spicy.
