  1. Wash and cube the pumpkins while retaining the skin
  2. Roughly crush the onion and grated coconut
  3. In a wok add pumpkin, chili powder, turmeric powder, salt along with few tsp of oil and cook till the pumpkin are half done
  4. Add crushed onion and coconut and cook till the pumpkin is fully done
  5. Add coconut oil and stir
  6. Serve with rice or chapatti as a side dish
