@vegan93 mentioned Jamie Oliver and I decided to look him up since I had never heard of him before. Once I found the site I figured why not find my final recipe for the Cookingbites Challenge and this is what I came up with.

Ingredients
  • 1 pumpkin , or squash (roughly 900g)
  • 4 cm piece of ginger
  • 4 shallots
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 fresh red chilli
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander
  • groundnut oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 20 curry leaves
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 x 400 g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 x 400 g tins of coconut milk
  • 2 x 400 g tins of chickpeas

Method
Chop the pumpkin or squash into 3cm chunks and cut the ginger into matchsticks. Pick the coriander leaves and finely chop the stalks.

Pour a good lug of groundnut oil into a large saucepan and place on a high heat. Add the ginger, garlic, red chilli and shallots, then reduce to a medium heat. Cook until golden, stirring occasionally, then add the mustard seeds, curry leaves, and coriander stalks and fry until the curry leaves go crispy. Add the turmeric, tomatoes and coconut milk. Bring to the boil, then add the pumpkin and chickpeas. Reduce to a low heat, cover with a lid and simmer for 45 minutes. Check occasionally and add a splash of water if it looks a bit dry.

When the time’s up, take the lid off and cook for a further 15 minutes or so until the sauce is lovely and thick.

Scatter with coriander leaves and serve with rice, naan bread and chutneys and dips on the side.

Even though the challenge is over, I think I might give this one a go. A very interesting recipe indeed!

I love curries of all varieties and this one sounds really yummy. Apart from the pumpkin itself I'm pretty sure I have all the other ingredient available right now in my pantry! And I love Jamie Oliver - I have a couple of his cookbooks which I thoroughly enjoy!
