Mashed Pumpkin with Turmeric Recipe - Turmeric Pumpkin Recipe - Simple Pumpkin Recipe

I went for a short trip to India. My mum has a little garden. She has most of the vegetable at her backyard and it is organic. I love the pumpkin from her garden it is very young (hardly has any seeds) and very tasty too. She made simple side dish with it when I was there. I loved it. When I came back and opened my luggage I was pleasantly surprised. She had packed one pumpkin. and I saw this recipe in Preethi's space. It was so simple and very interesting. I had decided to try this out for my roti / Pulka. 

Diced Pumpkin - 2 cups (I have used Skin too)
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Green chillies - 4 Slit into two (Mine was not that spicy adjust based on spice level of chilli and your preference)
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad Dhal - 1 teaspoon
Curry Leaves - 10-15
