Place the pumpkin in a pot with cinnamon stick, green chillies, 5 curry leaves, fenugreek seeds, turmeric, salt, red chili powder, and 400ml of water.
Bring to a boil, then cook uncovered for 12–15 minutes until the pumpkin becomes tender, but not mushy. You should be able to pierce the pumpkin with the tip of a knife, but it should not fall apart.
Meanwhile, using a blender or food processor, grind together the mustard seeds, peppercorns, and 2 tablespoons of the grated coconut with the coconut milk.
Pour this into the boiled pumpkin and allow it to simmer for a few minutes until the gravy thickens slightly. Taste for salt and turn off the heat.
In a separate small frying pan, heat the oil until smoking, and then add the remaining curry leaves. As they turn crisp after about 30 seconds or so, add the remaining grated coconut, and fry until crisp and golden in color. Sprinkle on top of your curry as a garnish.
