Goan Pumpkin Subzi is yet another delicious and healthy dish that we make in Goa specially on the vegetarian days. Today when I made this zero oil pumpkin subzi, it was devoured by all at home. Hubby gave me certain instructions to make this subzi and I twisted it according to the other subzis which my mom makes at home. You can check this Tambdi bhaji (red amarunthus) recipe by or avryachi bhaji which all taste delicious.
We GSB’s do not eat fish on certain days like monday, thursday and saturday and dedicate them to certain Gods. Like monday is considered to be Lord Shiva’s day, thursday for Lord Datta Maharaj, friday to the Goddess like Durga or Kamakshi and saturday to Lord Hanuman. During these veg days we prepare variety of veg dishes. Subzis, dals of different types and sides like rava fried veges or pakodas and salads. I want all my readers to know that Goans don’t just eat anything. We also eat veg dishes and have plenty of veg dishes in our Saraswat community.
Pumpkins are considered to be a super food. Since they are rich in vitamin A, they boost the eye health. They also lower the blood pressure and protect the heart.
