Place the onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric
and chili powder into a
food processor and process until a paste is formed.
Heat the oil in a deep-sided frying pan, carefully add the spicy
paste (at this stage it will splutter), stir it into the oil, lower the
heat and cook gently for about 10 minutes. If the mixture starts to
burn, add a little water.
When the paste is cooked it should be a golden brown color and have
oil around the edges.
When cooked and
sizzling, add meat and fry slowly, stirring for a few minutes.
Add water and
cook slowly with cover on pan until meat is nearly done.
Add salt and
pumpkin and continue cooking until meat is tender and pumpkin is soft.
Note : Pumpkin
can be replaced with the following vegetables : Tomatoes, green beans,
potatoes, eggplant, peas, split peas, okra, cauliflower, kohlrabi,
butter beans, broad beans or white radish.
