This irresistible pumpkin curry recipe is an easy heart warming dish that's pumped full of spicy flavour. The lentils add a nutty flavour.



300g-400g of pumpkin (or squash), cubed

1 onion

4 cloves of garlic

2 inches of fresh ginger

2 x tomatoes

dried green or brown lentils, rinsed and drained (1 and a 1/2 cups)

1 chopped apple


🔥 STEP 1
  • Finely chop the onion and finely grate the garlic and ginger. Gently fry in a pan with a splash of oil. Keep on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes until the mixture turns translucent.
  • 🍃 Top tip: if you find the mixture sticking to the pan, add a splash of water.

🔥 STEP 2

  • In a bowl, combine BANG!'s spices with 50ml of water.
  • Blend into a smooth, thick paste. Pour the paste into the pan and continue on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes.
  • This will magically turn into your curry sauce!
  • We've used our Classic Bangla kit which pairs beautifully with pumpkin.
  • 🍃 Top tip: look out for oils emerging from the mixture, then move onto step 3.

🔥 STEP 3

  • Add the lentils to the curry sauce and stir for  5 minutes.
  • Add the cubed pumpkin and raise the heat with 150ml water.
  • Add the apples for extra sweetness and cover. Lower the heat and bring to a simmer.
  • Continue to heat fro 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender and the water is absorbed.
  • Serve with fluffy basmati rice and enjoy!
