Lose yourself in the creamy consistency and refreshing flavour of this delicious Pumpkin Raita. The pleasant sweetness of pumpkin, sourness of curd and mild spiciness of the tempering combine beautifully to give this raita a very balanced flavour. Make sure you do not add water to the pumpkin while cooking it.

Pour a little water into the pressure cooker. Place the pumpkin in a smaller vessel and keep it on this water to cook, without directly adding any water to the vessel in which the pumpkin is kept. The water we pour into the cooker should not enter the vessel in which the pumpkin is placed. This is very important to avoid wateriness of the raita.

This raita goes well as an accompaniment to the main course .
