Pumpkin Mash / Kumra Bhorta

Shuvo noboborsho( happy Bengali new year) to all my wonderful readers. Sorry being irregular post. But I am actually trying to work Bangladeshi spices. Hope you will find those interesting and helpful. When I post any recipe, I love to have your comments, suggestions and expert opinion about it. Your comments will be helpful to other readers.

In Pumpkin Mash / Kumra Bhorta I used prawn. If you want to use more or less prawns or without prawn. But you know that prawn makes food tastier.





• 500 grams peeled pumpkin

• 100 grams peeled prawns

• 4-6 green chillies

• 1 large onion sliced

• 1 tablespoon coriander leaves (chopped)

• 3 tablespoon oil

• 1 tablespoon mustard oil(optional)

• Salt to taste

How to make:

1. Boil the pumpkin. I love to use microwave for this.

2. Heat the pan with oil and fry the onion till it becomes light brown.

3. Add prawn and chillies and fry it about 2 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and let it cools dawn.

5. Put the prawn onion mix in a food processor and make smooth paste.

6. Add boiled pumpkin and make smooth paste.

7. In the same pan pour the paste and mustard oil and cook it about 3-4 minutes.

8. Add chopped coriander leaves and remove from heat.

9. Serve Pumpkin Mash / Kumra Bhorta with hot plain rice.
