It’s just a simple salad I put together in minutes (barring the 40 mins it took to roast the pumpkin in the oven). Pumpkin has never been a contender of favourite vegetable for me. I grew up picking the pieces out of sambar and curries while pulling my face. It still isn’t a favourite, but I learned how it can taste pretty good with other vegetables or in a luscious soup.
The last few days of December was spent with my husband and my families. First four at my parents’ in Bangalore and another four at his in Mumbai. I can’t even begin to tell you how much we ate and what all we ate. Maybe in another post I’ll elaborate. But once I was on the plane back to Gurgaon, I knew I ate to my heart and stomach’s content and that I had to go easy once I was home. I’m slowly cutting down on sugar and other carbs like wheat and rice. No more chocolates and carb heavy meals every day.
