Curried Pumpkin

By Kevin • All, Vegetarian • 21 Oct 2012

I’m not a pumpkin pie fan, mainly due to the texture and typical spice blends used. The problem isn’t pumpkin itself and you definitely don’t have to overcook or puree it into to make it edible. In fact, this quick curry presents pumpkin in a new light for many in that it’s cooked to the point of being tender without turning to mush.

Time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4


2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic – very finely chopped or crushed
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 onion – chopped
4 cups pumpkin flesh – cubed to 1”
2 tomatoes – chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup chopped cilantro


Preheat a heavy cast pan on medium-high then add the butter.

Once the butter is hot, add the garlic, chili, garam masala, coriander and cinnamon, stirring for one minute.

Add the onion and cook, stirring often for three minutes.

Stir in the pumpkin and tomato. When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer, stirring occasionally for twenty-five minutes.

Remove from heat, then stir in the salt and pepper. Serve immediately topped with the cilantro.
