Yellow pumpkin is one of my favourite vegetable but after my wedding I was getting this veggie very less to eat because in my in law house no one prefer this veggie. Any way whenever I get chance to eat this I don’t leave it. So recently I was alone at home for a day and so I made this version of pumpkin and which was very tasty.
