      What a wonderful recipe! In all the fuss to make sure I got it right I forgot the bananas (the very reason I choose this recipe in the first place!). No matter - with or without bananas this is a beaut curry! Thanks!

      This was a really delicious, flavoursome veggie curry. I roasted the pumpkin/ curry paste combo in the oven, as it seemed less hassle than frying. Also, despite (or maybe because of!) using pine nuts in most of the recipes I've made in the past few weeks, whether they were called for or not, I'd run out, so used cashews instead.
