This pumpkin curry is very simple with only a few ingredients including fresh ginger and garlic and cooked in a rich tomato sauce. It really is such a beautiful dish that I want to share with everyone.
In this curry you will find one of the most delicious flavour combinations I have ever tasted. Unlike other curry dishes which can be overwhelmed with many different flavours, this one is actually very simple with only a few ingredients. The star of the show is the fresh ginger, which marries with the sweetness of the pumpkin so well.
I first discovered this in my teens, when my Lebanese step dad introduced me to various middle-eastern foods. We went to a restaurant in Alexandra Virginia a lot called Ariana Afghan, and the chef and owner Ariana told us this was her most popular dish. We quickly became obsessed, and I knew I wanted to re-create this once I started getting into cooking.
Both my toddler and baby love this. There is no chili, just the beautiful sweetness of the pumpkin, a gooey and rich tomato sauce that is perfumed with ginger. It gets a creamy topping of yoghurt just before serving.
