Pumpkin is a wonder vegetable – but sadly, its health benefits are not known to many. Red pumpkin contains a horde of valuable nutrients like fiber, folic acid and vitamin A , while also being low in calories.
That makes it doubly desirable! Lose yourself in the fabulous taste of this Pumpkin Dry Vegetable, while also soaking in its health benefits.
A tempering of varied seeds like fennel, fenugreek, mustard and cumin gives this zero oil subzi a brilliant aroma and flavour, while a dash of dry mango powder gives it a tongue-tickling tang. Enjoy this delicious recipe with whole wheat chapatis .
