Pumpkin-truly Pumps up your Kins! J
With loads of Vitamins ,Minerals, Carotenes this orange fleshy vegetable (I am calling this as a vegetable – that’s what it is regarded as in India) is rich in fibre and low in calories and Cholesterol. So many benefits and yet I am surprised this vegetable doesn’t enjoy the popularity it should. I know many people who will say ‘Pumpkin..yuck!’. Bhopla (in Marathi) or Kaddu (in Hindi) is looked down upon by many people. In fact Pumpkins are quite versatile and can be added to many recipes like soups, curries, Sambar,Puris,cakes,pies -the list is endless.
Each and every part of this plump vegetable is edible, tasty and nutritious- The flesh , the seeds and the skin too!(We make a delicious chutney from the skin)
So here’s Pumpkins Parathas for Meetas FMR
