Sweet Pumpkin Curry
Lets be honest, winter in Queensland ain't all that bad - its actually pretty mild most of the time. But lately the nights have been cold! Today I'm sharing one of my go-to winter meals. Its super quick, super easy and full of flavour. This curry also makes a good base if you need to clean out your fridge – I’ll often add cauliflower, broccoli, kale, capsicum or anything else I need to use up, and it still tastes just as good. This curry tastes even better the day after its made, so let those flavours infuse if you can! This recipe makes two large servings - you could easily stretch it to three.
