Garlic 2 cloves
Ginger (root) 1 teaspoon

Instruction. Pumpkin stewed with chickpeas tomatoes and spices with fried bananas.

Cooking time 45 minutes

Prepare the ingredients.

Wash the chickpeas and cover with cold water, leave for 8 hours. This can be done on the eve of cooking, for example, at night. After a while, drain the chickpeas. Put the chickpeas in a saucepan, cover with water, put on fire and cook for 1.5 hours.

Peel the onion, garlic and ginger, wash and cut into small cubes. Wash the tomatoes, dry them and also cut them into small cubes.

Carefully peel the pumpkin: remove the fibers and seeds. (This is probably the most time – consuming process, since the rind of the pumpkin is quite rough.)

In a frying pan, heat the vegetable oil (3 tablespoons). Add the onion, garlic, and ginger to the pan and fry for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and fry for a few more minutes, stirring.

Immediately add to the vegetables all the prepared spices and spices (salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, curry, cinnamon) – the aroma becomes incredible! Stir. Add the pumpkin slices to the pan.Then add boiled chickpeas to the vegetables.

Pour water into the pan. Mix everything and cover with a lid. Simmer the vegetables for 25 minutes over medium heat. Cut the banana into slices and fry in vegetable oil (2 tablespoons) on each side until golden – literally 20-30 seconds.

Put the pumpkin stewed with chickpeas, tomatoes and spices on a plate. Spread the fried bananas on top and serve the dish to the table.
Enjoy your meal!
