Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home without using preservatives and artificial colors.
A Quick and Super Yummy Curry
With their deliciously smooth and silky texture, pumpkins work well for making both sweet and savory dishes. This vegetable is great to incorporate into your cooking because they are low-calorie and highly nutritious. They are rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
Pumpkin curry has a mild sweet and spicy flavor. This recipe comes together quickly; I made it in only 20 minutes. Since it's a bit spicy, this curry pairs well with any type of Indian flatbread or steamed rice.
