"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. "
"Love the recipe"
"Just wonderful. I was somewhat stumped about the sequencing and when the pumpkin was to be incorporated in the curry. After sauteeing the onions, peppers, garlic and spices, I moved them to a bowl. Then cooked up the pumkin and curry paste. After 5 minutes added the onions and pepers back in and continued with the dish. Managed to also reduce the total amount of oil to 1 tablespoon by using some extra vegetable stock to soften the onions. Used fresh tomatoes but think this would work equally well with the canned variety. My final tweak was that I used a very ripe plaintain instead of the banana, a simple matter of availability and preference for cooking with plantains as they hold there shape a bit better. Will certainly make this soon as it was thoroughly enjoyed. Imagining variations with small amounts of chicken in lieu of some of the chickpeas, or a light addition of allspice. Thank you so much Sharon!"
"Absolutely delicous! It was definitely alot lighter than the usual curry I make(I have a thing for SE Asian curries, so I rarely try other one) but I wanted to do something different with my excess bananas. This only used one, and later on thought I should have added more, but then I ate it and decided 'No.' The banana added a very subtle flavour to this, and it was really nice and easy. I'm so glad I had everything on hand. I used one can of tomatoes and I want to say thankyou so much for this different and delicious recipe!"
"Delicious!! What an awesome recipe and so easy to prepare. I had everything at home except the cumin and cinnamon and it was still fantastic with vege stock and fresh tomatoes. Thank-you!"
"Wow.. this is so good! I love the variety of veggies and the addition of banana is fabulous!!!! I used fresh tomatoes and vegetable broth. I didnt have any pine nuts on hand, so I decided to top with some chopped cashew nuts... and it was actually marvelous! Thanks for the recipe :-)"
"This recipe is so good, full of flavour. I used the choice of fresh tomatoes and used chicken stock. I think the banana gives a touch of sweetness to balance the curry and spices. I served this with basmati rice to have a complete vegetarian meal, but it would be good as a side dish with a steamed chicken breast."
