Note :

  1. You can ignore the dal and make the stew only with Coconut-Jeera- Red Chili Paste
  2. Spice it Up – Instead of plain Coconut Jeera paste, you can fry the chana dal, coriander seeds & Red Chili in a teaspoon of oil and then add with Coconut -Jeera, to give additional flavor and taste
  3. Some people add the Tomato puree to the Stew. If you like Tomato, then you can add it while adding the pumpkin.
