Pumpkin Pachadi - Pumpkin Greek yogurt sauce - Greek Yogurt recipes - Pumpkin Recipes - Pachadi Recipes

I had some left over pumpkin after making mashed pumpkin. I wanted to make pachadi for my keerai Rice. I was not sure about which pachadi. Then I opened my fridge and remembered I had the pumpkin so I have decided to use it. In this if you want to add little Jaggery you can go ahead. I didn't add. As I wanted some spicy pachadi. Addition of small onion or shallots give nice flavour to the pachadi so don't skip it
