SIMPLE PLEASURES -Bhopalyache bharit/ Pumpkin Raita



Ingredients-:
  • Pumpkin- cooked
  • Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • Cumin Seeds
  • Turmeric
  • Asafoetida/ hing
  • Green Chili
  • Roasted Peanut powder
  • Salt to taste
Procedure-:
  • Cook the pumpkin and then peel it. I used steamer to cook the pumpkin, but you can certainly use the pressure cooker . It becomes easier to peel after it gets cooked. If you want you can peel it and then cook it. That is fine too.

  • Mash the pumpkin so that no big lumps are left.
  • Tadka preparation- Heat a pan with some ghee in it. Add cumin seeds, green chilies, saute for a minute and add asafoetida, turmeric.
  • Add roasted peanut powder.
  • Add salt to taste. Pour the tadka over the mashed pumpkin and mix well.
