Cut pumpkin into medium cube pieces and set aside.

Roast red chillies and sesame seeds to a golden color, and grind to a
powder. Set aside.

Oil a heated frying pan. Add black gram seeds, and fry on medium heat to
to a golden color. Add the curry leaves, and fry for a while.

Add washed pumpkin cubes, and stir. Sprinkle with salt.

Add water, cover and cook. Observe that it does not become
paste. The cubes should be seperate and smooth.
