Pumpkin Raitha recipe - pumpkin recipes

pumpkin raita I have a few Indian friends in my neighbourhood. We meet each other every evening in a nearby park. We have a chat while our kids play in the park. So evenings are real fun here. In those chats , we discuss recipes too and get lot of tips from each other. We especially discuss recipes which are easy to make and requires less time(probably because everyone is frustrated about what to cook everyday!!!the same old story!!!). So this easy raitha with pumpkin came up during one of those chats.
Indeed,its a really easy one. And it goes well with all kind of variety rice,may be even with phulkas.

Ingredients-
Pumpkin- 1 cup grated
yogurt- 2 cups
Salt to taste
Ginger- an inch chopped
Green chillies- 2 chopped
Coconut- 1/2 cup
Oil- 1tsp

Method-
Grind the ginger, green chillies and coconut together. Beat the yogurt well and then add the ground mixture into it. Mix well. Heat little oil in a pan. Add the grated pumpkin. Saute for few minutes till it turns a little soft, but should not get mashed. Add this to the yogurt mixture. Mix well.

you sure are lucky to have friends around. here, because of the climate one rarely sees people venture out of their homes :-(

i too love raita with rotis. pumpkin raita sounds interesting!

Divya Kudua said...

My mil makes a similar raita,only difference being,she doesnt make the ground masala-instead,she adds everything to the seasoning and sautes the pumpkin pieces in it and when it cools down,adds the whisked curds.Lovely accompaniment with rice-dal.
