A cooling raita is always a preferred side dish with spicy rice varieties. This is one of my favorite and this post is for Blogging Marathon #47, Week 2,Day 1, where we get to choose from a
set of restaurant menus and cook different dishes from one of those.
I chose the menu card from Puranmal

One of the dishes in the menu was Vegetable Raita and instead of doing mixed vegetables I used Pumkin.

I used:

Yellow pumpkin- 200 grams,chopped into small pieces
Yogurt- as needed
Mustard seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
Red chilii-1, broken
Curry leaves- a few
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 teaspoon

Heat water in a pan and when it comes to a boil, put in the pumkin pieces and cook till just done / fork tender.Drain well and keep aside.

In a bowl whisk the yogurt with salt and keep side.

Put the pumpkin into the yogurt bowl.Heat oil in a small pan and add the mustard, chilies, curry leaves. When
the mustard pops pour it into the yogurt. Mix and
serve.

Bon Appetit…
