Pumpkin Curry Recipe

My pet peeve in baking and cooking is all of the leftover ingredients that start to pile up after a few recipes.

So many recipes require half a can of something, or just a smidge of a container of something else. Then you’re left with all these ingredients that you have no planned use for but need to use up in the near future or else you feel completely wasteful. (Or is that just me?)

There are so many delicious pumpkin baking recipes that I use in the fall that don’t use up a full can of pumpkin, so I’ve had to come up with some creative ways to use it up.

Sometimes I make my pumpkin hot chocolate (which just requires a couple tablespoons) or let my daughter use it up with some pumpkin play dough or pumpkin slime. But this pumpkin curry recipe is a new favorite. It can be made with chicken or shrimp and whatever veggies you have kicking around.

It’s a super versatile recipe that you can really tweak to your own liking. It has that perfect sweet-savory-earthy flavor profile and I love the tender pumpkin contrasted to the snap of the shrimp and the perfectly cooked veggies. It’s a perfect fall comfort food dish for curry fans.

Kitchen Tools You May Find Helpful

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Spatula <– I like these spatulas because they are one solid piece and don’t have removable heads for bacteria to get trapped underneath. Plus they are heat-resistant and have a lifetime warranty.
  • Cast Iron Skillet <– I love the versatility of a good cast-iron pan – you can make everything from eggs to dessert in them and they transition easily from the stove to the oven. This one is pre-seasoned and great for even heating

How to Make Pumpkin Curry

Set a skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the chopped onion and curry powder. Saute until onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add pumpkin and use a spatula to smoosh it down.

Add chopped veggies and shrimp and cook until shrimp is curled and cooked through.

Add the coconut milk and vegetable broth and stir together, before adding the cooked rice.

Cover and let it simmer over medium heat for another 5 minutes.

Taste and adjust the seasoning, as desired.
