Pumpkin is a highly nutritious, low-fat, low-calorie, rich in fiber, and versatile product. Here is an easy pumpkin curry:

  • 500 g cubed pumpkin (or butternut squash)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 green chilli (at least – to taste), sliced
  • 2,5 cm cube ginger, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder or a knob of fresh turmeric, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp whole mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • Pinch of salt
  • Fresh coriander

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add mustard and cumin seeds till they sizzle.

Add green chilli, stir.

Add the pumpkin, turmeric, ginger and coriander seeds, and a little water if it seems necessary. Stir, cover and simmer slowly till the pumpkin is tender and the water has disappeared.

Just before serving, sprinkle with a handful of fresh coriander leaves.
