Looks like PUMKIN is the vegetable of the month, almost all the blogs I follow have some or the other pumkin dishes, from pastries to soups this vegetable can fit in anywhere. I got 1kg of pumkin on the other day as I was expecting some guest and i thought of cooking Pumkin Halwa, however the guest didn turn up and I was left with 2 big chunks of yellow pumkin in the fridge.
