I love this recipe - pumpkin get transformed to another delicious space. Make it as sweet / sour / spicy as you like .No masalas are used here - no onions/tomatoes , ginger or garlic - simple clean and well balanced basic flavors make this dish so special. Raw mango here is my addiction , just because I had it in the fridge. Do try it , you will enjoy this .
