Hi Mahek...I have mentioned in my ingredients list that the pumpkin must cooked- skin removed and cooked with a pinch of salt and a dash of water for one whistle or steamed until tender) approximately 350 grams raw pumpkin is required to get it.
You can use any pumpkin. I have used Japanese pumpkin becoz it have a wonderful bright colour.. U can use sunflower or any other oil..bUT I would recommend Olive oil and sunflower oil...
Happy baking!
