Asafoetida has a very unique flavour, the recipe will still come out fine, even if you decide not to use it.
You do not have to take the skin off for most sitaphal/petha (in India)(squash/pumpkin in North America) for this recipe, however if you have already used a particular kind of pumpkin that is known for coarse skin, you may remove the skin.
