1/4th teaspoon mustard oil (xhorioh tel)
Two-three chilies (jolokia)
Coriander leaves (dhania paat)
Salt to taste
Optional: Yellow mustard seeds (halodhia Xhorioh)


Boil the potatoes and pumpkin. Take them off the water and place them on a plate. Add chopped onions, chilies, coriander leaves, salt, and mustard oil to the boiled vegetables and mash them together.
