This recipe is a big story on how I tricked my son. "Pumpkin! mama, no way". I have tried all the ways to make him eat pumpkin. Everything failed. He likes "Manchurian" and that too "Potato manchurian"(not the cauliflower one). I am not giving up this time. I prepared him a spicy, saucy pumpkin manchurian. He was absolutely clueless that the manchurian was the white pumpkin one. He liked it and asked for more. Yippee! I made him eat white pumpkin at last. This manchurian is like a gravy unlike the other dr
