Kaddu Raita (Pumpkin Yogurt Curry)

kaddu raita 
Kaddu was never a favorite this side. However, ever since I tasted kaddu sabzi (pumpkin curry) in a community kitchen in Khadur Saheb, I have developed special liking for pumpkin. Nevertheless I had never thought of trying kaddu ka raita unless I came across my dear friend Tanvee Sharda's heirloom kaduu raita recipe.

Finally, I have given it a try and amazingly, the unique blend of pumpkin and curd tastes yum! I made my own adjustments to the recipe.



Ingredients
1/4 pumpkin (sliced into small pieces)
1 cup- curd
1/2 tsp- mustard seeds
1/4 tsp- chana dal
1/4 tsp- urad dal
black salt

sugar- 1 big pinch
green chilly
coriander leaves
roasted jeera powder (cumin seeds)
flax meal (alsi powder)
1/4 tsp- oil

  1. Boil pumpkin with little salt and turmeric for 20-30 minutes or until soft.
  2. Let it cool.
  3. Meanwhile, let's prepare the tempering.
  4. Put oil in a pain. Drop in mustard seeds. Let them splutter.
