Normally, I don't like pumpkins, especially the ripe ones. So, if they are used in sambhar or avial or made as erissery, I am fussy! But that's not the case with the raw ones.... I love raw pumpkins and papaya...Raw pumpkins are good for salads (especially their skin) and juices; and raw papayas make a good thoran. It was my papa who introduced me to these juices made out of raw pumpkins and they tasted yummy.....He used whatever fruits and veggies that were available in his garden for the juices....The main ingredients, however were pumpkins, carrots and apples, with a few additions or subtractions in the ingredients. I always prefer to stick with pumpkins, carrots and apples without any sugar and we, including my little fussy-eaters love it.
