Wattakka or Pumpkin is a veggie which we can cook in different style. This Wattakka Kalu Pol maluwa looks darker as we use roasted spices & coconut. For a Sri Lankan, I am sure this is one of the favourites. Wattakka can be cooked in a curry which gives an appearance of white or yellowish. That is a different recipe using green chilli. Some, they use oil and fry onion and red chili before adding pumpkin.But I do not use oil here as this recipe is loaded with coconut milk & grated coconut. Still this is tasty and I believe bit healthier than adding oil.
