Pumpkin is very tasty and healthy vegetable and it will be available in light yellow colour and dark yellow colour. It will be available in everywhere at very low cost. In Kerala, almost all houses will have natural pumpkin because it is very easy to cultivating for homely needs or requirements. It contains a lot health benefits and it looks very attractive. It is a big vegetable and it will last for long days. Pumpkin has very thick peel and inside is very soft, we have to remove this peel to make dishes. It can cook very easily and it will have a creamy effect after cooking it well.

'Salad' is very famous name for everyone and everyone tasted different types of salad. We are making different types of salads in our house and also we will get it from hotels and restaurants. Salads are mainly using as the side dish with Biriyani, ghee rice, plain rice and chapati. Usually we are making salad with onion but we can make salads with any other fruits and vegetables. Different salads will have different ingredients so taste also will change based on ingredients. Usually making salads with raw ingredients but here I used cooked pumpkin to make this salad. It it entirely different from other salads and its main tastes are coconut, coconut milk, sour taste and  a little sweet taste. It is better to use in the evening time and dinner time. This very suitable to use fat people  to reduce fat and also give health benefits.
