The Pumpkin Raita is an easy but elegant recipe that brings together the mellow tang of curds with the pleasing sweetness of pumpkin.

The parboiled pumpkin gives the raita a nice mouth-feel while a simple, traditional tempering gives it a peppy aroma and good flavour.

A tasty and refreshing accompaniment, this raita can perk up any meal. You can also try other pumpkin recipes like the Pumpkin Kootu and Pumpkin Paratha .
