  2. The texture and looks of the pumpkin soup looks great...hope it tasted good too. I had once tasted this pumpkin soup in my kids school and it was thick. I personally love cooking pumpkin instead of eating it raw...remember as we call as "poosinika poriyal" with mustard and coconut. Try sharing that recipe too :)

    And hearty congratulation for winning the grand prize for Watermelon contest :)
