Here's The Simplest of Easy Curry Recipes
Ray's Pumpkin Curry

This dish serves 4 persons.

Just Add Prepare
• 1/2 pumpkin, peeled, cut into 2" square chunks

• 1 onion, diced finely

• 1/2 tsp garlic powder

• 1 heaped tbs brown sugar

• 1 heaped tbs curry powder

• 1 tsp cumin

• 2 tbs soy sauce

• salt and pepper to taste

• 1 cup vegetable stock liquid

• 2 tbs fish sauce

• 1 cup sour cream (Optional)

• In a hot non stick heavy saucepan, fry onions, garlic, curry powder and cumin till the onions are soft and the curry fragrant. Add a little water or oil if the curry powder is sticking to the pan

• Toss in all the other ingredients and seasoning. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to simmer

• Cook till the pumpkin is soft.

• Optional - Ray does not add sour cream, but I do. If you wish, stir through the sour cream when the meal is just about ready to be served. I find it makes the curry creamy and adds depth to the flavor.


Use non-stick saucepans to minimize the use of cooking oil. Otherwise, please add a tablespoon of vegetable oil when cooking the onion, garlic, curry powder and cumin.

The secret to cooking curries, is that the curry powder should be fried till fragrant before adding in the meat or vegetables.

If you'd like some green color, stir through a cup of frozen green peas when the curry is cooked and ready to be served. The heat from the curry is sufficient to warm through the peas.


Isn't this just the simplest of curry recipies?
