soak tamarind in a bowl filled with about 200 ml water

heat three tablespoons of cooking oil in the frying pan

add garlic to it

fry till it goes brown

now add onion to it and let it go brown by frying

now add chopped pumpkin pieces into this cooking pan

Cover with the lid and let the pressure come

on the other hand, mince the tamarind into water in which it was soaked

now filter out the seeds and fibres and collect the fluid with tamarind
