White pumpkin(ash gourd) in Tamil it is called as thadiyangai or vellai poosani. White pumpkin is popular in South Indian foods and widely used in kootu, sambar and patchadi. This white pumpkin kootu is a traditional dish in Tirunelveli. White pumpkin kootu is cooked with coconut paste and chana dal.
