you probably might know this, but this is a pretty important tip when making especially pumpkin soup (and curry to an extent)

(if you have a crappy flavourless out of season pumpkin then disregard this)

the real good tasting pumpkin flavour disappears super fast if you simmer it too long. eg. when making pumpkin soup you need to cook it till its still firmish, but cooked through (if you know what i mean) so its not mushy (and then blend it) . if you cook it any longer, even if youre blending all the water that you've boiled it in into the soup, the flavour will be gone and the soup will taste watery, and the texture will also be shot. Maybe this is common sense, but ive definately found it an important thing to know, it makes a fucking giant flavour difference - try it, you'll see what i mean.

thai green curry is probably the easiest to implement - i buy tubs of green curry paste from asian supermarkets and make it like this.

couple cups of peeled and roughly chopped pumpkin
1 cup green beans, i use frozen but fresh is fine ;)
1 onion, roughly chopped (i end up with chunks of onion layer about 2cm x 2cm)
1 carrot, split in half then cut into about 2mm thick semi-circles
2 tablespoon of green curry paste (green shouldn't normally contain shrimp paste, but check)
2 cans of coconut milk

Heat a tiny bit of oil in wok. Sweat onions until they are softened, near the end of this i add the curry paste and cook it up for a couple minutes. Add everything else. Heat everything until coconut milk starts to boil, then turn down and simmer until pumpkin cooked, stirring when you can be bothered.


cheers, i am making a big ass pot of this, its starting to smell pretty damn good about now

That looks impressive. Try substituting green curry paste with a teaspoon of turmeric, adding a cinnamon stick, ginger root, some red chillies and cashew nuts for a Sri Lankan style curry variation.

Walk over and get it then. 50 meters is blatantly too far for me. Its even clean now too: bonus. I think I have a baking tray as well.
