204. White pumpkin salad

When we ask for  a small slice of white pumpkin in the market, they will give a big slice only. After preparing sambar or kootu, half slice will sleep in the fridge. When we use it after 4 or 5 days, while cooking it may turn brown and spoil our cooking. So, for using left out pumpkin immediately, I tried white pumpkin salad, the recipe of which I want to share with you. It is very simple.

Ingredients needed :

pumpkin – 100 gm

curd – 1 cup

aval(poha) – 1/2 cup

green chilly – 2

salt – 1/2 tsp

pomegranate – 1/4 cup

capsicum – 1/4 cup

cooking oil – 1/4 tsp

mustard – 1/2 tsp

asafoetida – 1/4 tsp

coriander leaves – one small bunch

Method of preparation :

Remove pumpkin seeds and skin. Cut it into small pieces and just grind in a mixie with  green chillies. Put it in a bowl and add  curd. . Add  washed and cleaned poha(aval) into it. Add  salt, corriander leaves, pomegranate and thinly sliced capsicum. Season  mustard and asafoetida in cooking oil and add to the salad.  No need to say that it is very healthy and cool. Please try.
