2. Now add pumpkin cubes and salt and turmeric. Mix it well and cover it. Keep it on low flame to boil for 10-12 minutes. or until the pumpkin is soft and pulpy.

3 In a separate bowl, beat the curd with the gram flour. Add salt, a pinch of turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder and make a thin buttermilk mixture by adding water.

4. Pour this mixture over the cooked pumpkin. Make sure you keep the flame low and keep stirring it continuously. You have to keep the consistency even and not curd.

5. After mixing, let the mixture come to a boil. After the first boil, reduce the flame again and keep stirring in between. Be careful as the curd gravy needs little attention. Let it cook on low flame for another 15 minutes.

6. If you want, you can temper the cooked curry with ghee and spices while serving. I chose to keep it simple.

8. Enjoy your meal with Ambli and start consuming millets that are good for your health.
