Golden Pumpkin Curry

Serves: 4 – 6 as a side Vegetarian Vegan

This recipe is from Rafi’s very first cookbook (1985), and we still love it! A rich coconut sauce delicately spiced with mustard and fennel seeds.

Serve it with tomato-based curries such as the Madras or the Vindaloo.

Please note: Due to shortages of fresh ingredients some of our products may be made using dry ingredients (chilli powder & dry curry leaves) - this will not affect the flavour of your Curry Packs.

Try it with: Small pumpkins and squashes for best flavour. This mix also works brilliantly with sweet potato.

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Cut 500g of pumpkin into cubes and sprinkle with a little salt and a drizzle of oil.
  2. Roast in the oven until golden and tender, then set aside.
  3. Gently heat 2 tbsp veg oil in a large pan and fry the contents of the pack for 3 - 4 minutes.
  4. Add one finely sliced onion and fry until soft.
  5. Stir in the pumpkin and fry for 1 - 2 minutes.
  6. Reduce the heat and pour in 200ml coconut milk.
  7. Cook uncovered for 2 - 3 minutes or until the pumpkin starts to become a little mushy.
  8. Add salt to taste and serve hot, garnished with coriander leaves and lime juice.
