The Perfect Pumpkin Curry

Every week I receive a "panier bio," or,  a burlap sack of organic seasonal fruits and veggies. It's pretty cool. I've been getting a lot of pumpkin lately so my new favorite thing is to cut one in half, bake it, and use one part for a pumpkin bread and the other for a curry. The result is that my pumpkin bread still sucks but my pumpkin curry could slay an army. Oh so ono.

Okay so cutting to the chase:

a chunk of baked pumpkin
400 ml of coconut milk
250 g of white beans
2 baked, russet potatoes
1/2 cup raisins 
1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
about 3 medium carrots, cut into curry sized pieces
1 medium onion
1 shallot
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 cup water

A LOT of curry powder, about 11/2 tbs, until broth is dark yellow
1 tsp cinnamon 
1/2 tsp coriander 
1 tsp crushed basil
1/2 paprika (mostly to give the curry a nice color)
salt and pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large wok and then add onion, carrots, shallot, and purple cabbage. Saute until golden. Add coconut milk and spices and reduce heat. Cover and let simmer until carrot is soft when poked with a fork. Taste constantly and ad spices until the broth is to your liking! Add white beans and raisins. Cut your cooked potato and pumpkin into curry sized chunks and add to the pan. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until you can't stand the amazing smell anymore. Serve on jasmine rice. And save some for lunch tomorrow - it's even better the next day :)
