Pumpkin wade or Pumpkin pooris can be sweet or spicy in taste. These are also known as “Dudyache wade”. Dhudhi as you all know is pumpkin. I always had Mangalore buns which are made of bananas. My mom in law taught us to make these pumpkin pooris which are very similar to the Mangalore buns. In Goa we call these pooris as wade, pronounced as WA of (Wall) and they. So it sounds like WA-they. I hope I have not confused you all now.
These sweet wade are a great way to eat pumpkin. A pumpkin hater will not know anything about the main ingredient (pumpkin) in these pooris. You can make these for your child who might be a fussy eater. He or she will love it. Also don’t forget that pumpkins are a rich source of vitamin A which is good for eyes. They also protect the heart by stabilizing the blood pressure.
