Green chilli - 1                                                                                                    
Red chilli - 1                                                                                                       
Coriander leaves (Cilantro) - handful                                                                                  
Mint (pudina) leaves -  leaves of two twigs or 24 leaves                                                               
oil - 3 tsp
salt - to taste
Ginger - a small piece                                                                             
Tamarind - a small piece                                                                                               
Garlic - 3 small
Onion medium sized - 1                                                                                                 
Grated coconut (optional) - 3 tsp
 
Method
1. Take a kadai and pour oil in it.  When it is hot put the red chilli and fry, remove and keep aside.
2. In the same oil,  add the chopped onions, saute for two minutes,
3. Add the grated pumpkin, green chilli, tamarind piece in it. Saute again till it becomes soft/cooked. 
4. Switch off the gas. Add the garlic, ginger, coconut, pudina leaves, salt.
5. Grind to a smooth chutney by adding water. This can be had with anything like dal  rice, curd rice, chappati, wada, pattice etc.
 
I prefer to eat with hot rice, two tsp gingelly oil in it and the chutney mixed in it. It is a lovely combination.
 
Variation

 -  Fry two tsp urid dal, red chilli, add the pumpkin and saute till it becomes soft.  Add tamarind piece, coconut, salt and grind to a smooth chutney.
