Recipe by Vic Krishnan Kannan

Red pumpkin is high in fibre but is sweet...so to balance the taste with a bit of sourness and bit of spice was a challenge...in the end, had to take a bit from the East and the West to perfect this recipe.

  1. De-skin the Pumpkin and take out the seeds and cut the flesh of the pumpkin into 2cm square chunks. Do the same to the tomatoes also.
  2. Add above to a deep pan.
