But she gave a good recipe for the pumpkin Idly. I tried a couple of times and it came out good, and everyone was happy with the end result. I still have a quarter of pumpkin gazing at me in the fridge. Here is the recipe
1 cup rava/sooji
2 and 1/2 cup of grated sweet pumpkin
1/2 cup of grated jaggery, more if you desire more sweetness.
A pinch of salt
1 tsp of ghee to roast sooji
1/2 cup of grated fresh coconut
1. Fry/roast rava till it becomes slightly brown.
2. mix roasted rava, grated pumpkin, coconut,cashew nuts, jaggery.
3. Put the mixture in idly molds and cook it for about 20 min in low flame( same way as we cook idlies).
