  9. Sonia, I wasn't a fan of pumpkin but my other half is and he's always bugging me to cook dishes with pumpkin. Now, I quite like it too because it's very nutritious.

    Dried shrimps. There are a few types, the bigger ones are slightly dearer.

    Pumpkin has plenty of goodness, a rich source of beta-carotene.

    For colour you mean? On its own, the colour is just great, never tried adding in turmeric though.
