Indian Pumpkin Masala

Indian Pumpkin Masala

There are so many things to make out of pumpkins. The best known dish is the pumpkin soup. We also cooked pumpkins in one of our delicious currys. In our Indian Pumpkin Masala we cooked a pumkin in a typical savory Indian curry. The flavor mixes in this dish are incredible. The sweetness of the pumpkin comes together with the typical Indian spices. A perfect combination and 100 % glutenfree.
