Instant Pot Red Pumpkin Raita/ Lal Bhoplyache bharit/ खमंग लाल भोपळ्याचे भरीत/ Bhoplyachi Koshimbir

We all love any pumpkin in any form .... Yes it's true. Not only adults but kids in the family too love it.
I cooked the pumpkin in my Instant pot which was so easy and quick. If you are cooking it in pressure cooker, then just put it along with your dal-rice.
