My family is definitely curry-phobic. They didn't grow up on the stuff and aren't sure they want to try it now. This curry is for the curry-phobes, not to spicy, not too hot, but definitely delicious and certainly adventurous enough for those aren't really adventurous at all. Curry enthusiasts can turn up the heat as high as they like, of course.

I love curry, and I was intrigued by the ingredients in this one. It was a nice curry and easy to prepare. I used fresh pumpkin cubes, homemade tomato sauce, and some toasted pepitas instead of the pine nuts. Thanks for sharing!
