How To Make Indian Pumpkin Curry
I like to cut the pumpkins into medium chunks and the sliced spinach gives a beautiful contrast to the yellow pumpkins. Start the recipe with sautéing dried bay leaf followed by browning onions. I also added some fresh ginger, garlic and green chilies to the browned onions.
Next up, add the ground spices – curry powder and a touch of ground turmeric. Give it a quick stir fry, and pour in vegetable stock and coconut milk. If you are after a slight variation, you can also add some chicken stock.
Don’t forget to season this with salt and pepper. Now, the pumpkin goes into this Indian pumpkin curry recipe alongside sliced spinach and coriander leaves. Let this cook for a few minutes until the veggies are tender.
Such a simple yet delicious Indian pumpkin curry to serve with your favorite sides, rice or naan.
