Happy Friday Pumpkin Curry --- www.thevitalsisters.com
If you are finding yourself stuck for ideas for healthy Friday night dinner to enjoy with friends and family, look no further as we have the answer right here for you. Try our vegan pumpkin curry, it is really delicious, not forgetting to mention also packed with nutritious ingredients.

The pumpkin we used in this recipe was a Hokkaido. What we like about it is, that you can leave the skin on, providing it is organic. Leaving the skin on gives a slightly firmer texture and above all preserves more vitamins.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 700g pumpkin, diced, about 2-3cms
  • 10-15 tbsp Vital Sister’s curry paste (or whatever is your favourite)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 20 ml vegetable stock or water
  • 1 cup organic coconut milk
  • optional chilli flakes or thinly sliced fresh chilli
  • salt and pepper

HOW IT’S DONE:

  1. If possible, the pumpkin in the recipe should be marinated in 1 tbsp of curry paste over night, or for at least a couple of hours. This will mildly flavour the vegetable which is really nice. But you are pressed for time, you can hit this step.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large heavy bottomed saucepan. Add the chopped onion and cook on medium heat until the onion starts to soften.
  3. Add the curry paste and cook for about 2-3 minutes on high heat. Don’t burn the spices, they merely toast to develop their full aroma.
  4. If you fancy an additional spice kick, you can now add chilli flakes or fresh chilli.
  5. Add the pumpkin. Make sure you coat all pieces in your curry mix.
  6. Follow with the chopped tomatoes and stock.
  7. Gently cook the curry for about 15 minutes with the lid on and then again 5-10 minutes without a lid. The pumpkin should be cooked nicely but remain bite.
  8. Check your seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Pour in the coconut milk and briefly heat through.
  10. Serve the pumpkin curry with a salad of fragrant herbs , homemade pita and freshly boiled rice.
  11. Best enjoyed with friends and family.

Happy Friday!
