There’s something quite magical about pumpkin in curry. I love the way it takes on flavours from the spices and coconut cream but still remains so buttery and melts in your mouth.
Although this recipe takes 45mins, it’s very easy to make. We like to toast off all of our spices to ensure the flavours pack a punch. You could also add pre cooked pumpkin if you want to speed thing up for a curry in a hurry.
Pumpkin is rich in beta carotene which our bodies convert into vitamin A. Consuming foods rich in beta-carotene may reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer, offer protection against asthma and heart disease, and delay aging and body degeneration. If working in the cosmetic industry has taught me anything, it’s that we all want to look and feel as great and as youthful as we can and that’s nothing to be ashamed of, it shows we have pride in ourselve’s and want to live life to the best of our abilities. So vitamin A is a non-negotiable vitamin for vitality and longevity.
