Pumpkin Raita recipe | Kaddu ka raita

Pumpkin raita | kaddu ka raita is a easy raita recipe. Few weeks back when i went to my friend's house for Varalakshmi pooja, during a conversation she was telling about pumpkin raita. I never know that we can make raita with pumpkin. We south Indians make raita with White pumpkin| ashgourd, but making raita with yellow pumpkin | kaddu is quite new to me. Later she shared the recipe with me and it tried this few days back. It turned out very well. Try out this easy pumpkin raita recipe.
