Instructions
  1. Firstly prepare the vegetables: Cube the pumpkin into 2/3cm pieces (you can use butternut squash if you can’t find a pumpkin), slice your shallots, cut your plum tomatoes into half, chop your ginger into small pieces and crush your garlic. Lastly, chop your chillies into thin pieces. NB: If you prefer your curry not too hot, then deseed chillies first.
  2. In your pan add the coconut oil and let it melt, to test the temperature is high enough add a few mustard seeds to the pan. Once they begin to pop, add the remaining mustard seeds and ½ tsp cumin.
  3. After few seconds add the chopped ginger, followed by the garlic, sliced shallots and chilli. Decrease the heat to medium and stir frequently.
  4. If the ingredients start to stick add a touch more coconut oil. Followed by your tumeric.
  5. Once the onion and garlic start to soften, add your pumpkin or squash cubes and pour in the water. Stir well and simmer on low for around 10 minutes.
  6. As soon as the pumpkin is starting to feel soft add your plum tomatoes, can of chickpeas and coconut milk, mix it altogether and simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
  7. The pumpkin/squash should now be fully cooked, so to finish the dish take some fresh mint leaves, stir into your sauce, simmer for another minute and then serve hot it with wild or brown rice and vegan naan bread 🙂
