1-2 Cups *Urid flour
1 Medium size Butternut Pumpkin
2 Green Chillies
1/2 Lemon (Zest)
Oil to fry
1 Tblsp Olive Oil, for mixture
*1 Tsp Pepper powder, to taste
Salt to taste
*It depends on how much Salt and Pepper powder You prefer.

Wash and skin the Butternut Pumpkin, cut into approximately 1” squares and mince using a Food Processor (Do a little at a time) and put aside.
Now mix the Green Chillies, Salt, Pepper powder, Eggs and Urid Flour together.
Oil your palms and form spoonsful of the mixture, flatten into Patties and put into pan with hot Oil. Cook both sides till golden brown. Enjoy with either a salad or chutneys or anything else you fancy!
