Yogurt is a traditional Afghani condiment and ingredient, often made fresh at home every few days. It’s used in kadu borani (pronounced “ka-doo bore-ah-nee”), a side dish made by frying pumpkin (kadu) with a sweet tomato sauce that is served topped with garlic-mint yogurt (borani). You can substitute any squash for the pumpkin, or use canned puree.



Ingredients

  • 2 small sugar pumpkins (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Roma tomato, chopped
  • 3 fresh mint leaves, chopped, or pinch dried mint
  • 1-2 thin slices peeled fresh garlic
  • Pinch ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons plain whole-milk yogurt, for babies older than 8 months

Directions

Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove pumpkin stems. Cut pumpkins in half and use a spoon to scoop out seeds. Cut each pieces in half again and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until soft and fork-tender. Let cool and peel skin, which should come off easily. Puree pumpkin and a few teaspoons water in a mini food processor or blender.

Make: In a 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add tomatoes and sauté for about 5 minutes, until saucelike in consistency and beginning to turn dark red.
