National Curry Week: Autumnal Pumpkin Curry

Tilda, Autumn curry

I recently wrote a post where I was getting verrrry excited for Autumn and everything cosy, delicious and colourful that it brings. Now that we are moving further into this season I have another very Autumnal themed post – Yay! I was recently contacted by the lovely team behind Tilda and they challenged me to put together a curry recipe to celebrate National Curry Week which runs from 10th – 17th October.  I decided to make my curry as seasonal as possible and so a Pumpkin Curry seemed like the obvious option. Despite being mainly recognised for its connotations with Halloween, it is the ultimate Autumnal vegetable. The pumpkin’s gorgeous burnt orange colour and a sweet but earthy flavour are perfect for cooking with and so delicious!

When I was putting together this recipe I couldn’t believe how tough the pumpkin was to cut through! It was quite a task but so worth it as the outcome was absolutely delicious. I used mange-tout, baby sweet corn, tomatoes, coconut milk, chilli powder, ginger and lime in this recipe along with a few more bits and pieces and they worked together so well. The sweeter flavours of the vegetables blended beautifully with the coconut, coriander and ginger and the chilli gave it a nice edge. I paired the curry with Tilda’s Brown Basmati, Quinoa, Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds rice and it worked so well. I was a little worried that it would be pumpkin over kill but the flavour in this rice pack is very subtle and it actually tastes quite nutty which I loved.

If you would like to see the full list of ingredients and the method for this recipe, you can find it here on Tilda’s website along with some great other recipes for National Curry Week.

I didn’t even realise that this pumpkin curry recipe was vegetarian until I had made it so it is perfect if you are a veggie! I think overall though as well as being a delicious and heart warming dish perfect for October, it is also really very healthy which is always a plus. It is packed with vegetables and the Quinoa, Pumpkin and Sunflower Seed rice is so nutritious.
