Ombhal is a traditional sweet and tangy gravy from Nagaland made from Green Pumpkin. Boiling the pumpkin with its skin increases the fibre content of the gravy. The addition of tamarind paste and jaggery syrup gives it a tangy and sweet taste.
This gravy is served with brown rice. It is high in dietary fibre which keeps us full for a long time. Green Pumpkin is a cool vegetable and balances all three doshas of the human body. The contrasting flavours make it yummy yet healthy.
