Pumpkin, cut into strips and fried in vegetable oil, is an exquisite side dish for meat dishes. Fried pumpkin for dessert is served with jam, honey or sugar.

– Pumpkin is devoid of pronounced taste and smell, therefore it is combined with most spices. Vanilla sugar or ground cinnamon is sprinkled on pieces of roasted pumpkin when preparing desserts. Parsley, dill, basil, garlic, black pepper – add to fried pumpkin if you need to give the dish a spicy taste. Mix dry herbs and spices and roll pieces of pumpkin in them before frying.

– To reduce the frying time of the pumpkin, boil the vegetable pieces for 3 minutes, cool and fry.
