About

A minimalist curry but maximal in taste. And easy to cook too!

This recipe is my adaptation of Indian curry. You can use any pumpkin, if you like, but I prefer butternut because it has a sweet and nutty taste which lend well to this recipe. You will notice that I use a few spices; these spices are the ones commonly used in Asian cooking, especially Indian cooking.
