Arafura Pumpkin 'Curry'

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

This is a fridge emptying out concoction with a Thai type flavour. It is very mild and my toddler went beserk over the pumpkin cooked in this way. It's nice to hear a toddler ask for more!

Absolutely delicious! I used canned coconut milk (light) instead of coconut powder. And freshly ground spices, which is worth the extra effort just for the smell of it. Also used a lot of Thai red chili peppers to make a more spicy curry. It tastes even better warmed up the next day!

  4. Crumble the'chicken' stock cube into the mix, and the coconut powder.
  5. Add water and mix well.
