Pumpkins at the vegetable market near the Meenakshi Temple.
Tamil Nadu is known for their vegetarian kitchen resorting from a long tradition.
Some dishes
Pumpkin Halwa (sweets) , Sweet Pumpkin Curry
Other use
A pumpkin smashed on the street will wipe away the evil eye. (new houses, business ..),
and cures from deseases resorting from the evil eye described in old Vedic scriptions.

A tip
It is advisable to eat vegetarian here in Tamil Nadu as the weather is rather hot and you get easily intoxicated by eating too much of protein , certainly mutton, that can result in skin-ulcers.
A joke
You will come to know that you are a TAMILIAN if you feel proud to have Pizza and coke as your favorite food (even if u don’t like them actually) ........
