It is just not pumpkin that the 55-year-old has been growing in this lockdown. He wrote in his caption, “Gardening efforts bearing big fat fruit along with bottle gourd, tomatoes, brinjals, chillies, beans, cabbages, cauliflower, methi, palak and radish. Pumpkin for the next five days I suppose,” asking his followers to share their favourite pumpkin recipes. In another picture, Milind is also accompanied by his wife Ankita Konwar, who is holding a second pumpkin.
Pumpkins have an abundance of antioxidants and vitamins. The fruit is rich in anti-ageing properties and is also known to be good for heart health. In addition to this, it is known to aid weight management and promote healthy skin. Being a good source of Vitamin C, it also helps in strengthening one’s immunity.
There are numerous ways to incorporate pumpkins into your diet. The most popular way is to make a soup out of the lovely fruit. The classic dish combines the creaminess of pumpkins with a dash of spices.
With these health benefits and yummy recipes, we hope you follow Milind’s suit and add some pumpkin charm to your home garden.
