Do you know that the orange colour in pumpkins comes from a pigment called beta carotene.Beta carotene has been known as an immunity booster especially in the elderly.Some studies have also shown that increased consumption of beta carotene can reduce the risk of cancer.It is also well known for it's anti-aging and antioxidants properties.
Today's recipe is a very healthy and immunity boosting pumpkin dip.This dip has been made using curd which has numerous health benefits.I have mentioned about curd in my previous post.

Method
-Peel the pumpkin and wash it and cut into small pieces.
-Take a deep vessel and add 3 cups of water to it.Add the cut pumpkin pieces and salt.Let it boil till the pumpkin is cooked well.Drain the water and let the pumpkin cool completely.
-In a separate pan heat oil and add the tempering ingredients and let it crackle.
-Now add the pumpkin and stir it for 2 minutes.

-Blend yogurt and pumpkin in a mixer.
 Enjoy the delicious dip with chapati,tacos or pulao.
