Many curry recipes have a lot of ingredients and because of that, people are often put off by them. So we decided to simplify this recipe to make it quicker and easier to cook but still a delicious curry full of flavour. You can use any pumpkin for this recipe. We used organic jap pumpkin. Traditionally this curry is eaten with brown or basmati rice and bread but it’s bursting with flavour so you can eat this curry with other steamed vegetables or vegetable curries as well. This is a good way for you to increase your vegetable consumption. Make sure your curry powder is free from fillers and gluten-free if you are gluten or wheat intolerant. One which is made purely with spices is best.
