This dish of Punjabi origin is quite literally named - khatta means sour, meetha means sweet and kaddu means pumpkin.

Traditionally made with tamarind, we’re using lemon here to provide the tanginess which perfectly balances the sweetness of the pumpkin.

I tried this recipe with slight trepidation as I am not a big fan of Butternut Squash. I was amazed and delighted with the result! The lemon juice cut through the sweetness I was worried about. The dish exceeded my expectation. It's remarkably flavoursome given basically the main ingredient is Butternut Squash. I now feel confident to try it again but with sweet potato! (Another vegetable I view with in the same way!) I followed the tip about roasting the squash, and only semi-mashed the dish and enjoyed the texture. Thanks Spicery

Great job, Robin! I'm glad we were able to convert you!
