Everyone likes sweet dishes and snacks very much. We can make many sweet dishes very easily at home. So many people don't know how to make sweet dishes in home. Mainly Keralites are using sweet dishes for their traditional celebrations such as Vishu and Onam. Today, I am going to share one sweet recipe through this that is called as Pumpkin Sweet Raita and it is also known as Pumpkin Sweet Pachadi. This dish is very sweet and it also contains the sour taste of Yogurt. I made this special dish for celebrating Onam. Here made it with Pumpkin which contains a lot of health benefits. This is super combination with hot plain Rice for lunch and I used it with Rice, Sambar and Aviyal. This dish is looking very attractive with natural Yellow colour. I made it little bit different and it has the taste of Cumin Seeds and Mustard Seeds. Raisins and Sugar combination is giving a different taste. It is spicy less dish so it will be healthy and very useful for kids.
