Kaddu Ki Sabzi Recipe | Pumpkin Sabzi in a Traditional Indian way | Kaddu Sabzi Recipe

Kaddu Ki Sabzi is a quick, spicy and sweet recipe that can be made for special occasions or just as a part of everyday meal. Since it is a no-onion no-garlic recipe it can also be made for festivals and fasting. Kaddu sabzi is made in many ways. This version of kaddu sabzi is one of my hubby’s favorites. It is flavored with spices and sweetened with Jaggery. Soon I’ll post the spicier version of this sabzi that is my personal favorite 🙂 .

I learned this Kaddu ki sabzi from a halwai. I learned this kaddu ki sabzi from a halwaii especially for my hubby as it is his one of the top favorites. You can enjoy kaddu ki sabzji with hot crispy pooris, parathas, or even rice. Have it in lunch or dinner, it tastes divine. Today I made pooris and aloo tamater (potatoes in tomato gravy) with this sabzi which is an ideal combination that blends together very well.
