Recipe: Chicken and Pumpkin Curry

I’m sorry that I didn’t take a photograph of this dish, but here is the recipe.


  • 50ml Rama (2 tablespoons)
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 10ml garlic, finely chopped (2 teaspoons or one clove)
  • 10ml ginger, finely chopped (2 teaspoons)
  • 25ml curry powder (1 heaped tablespoon)
  • 1 chicken, cut into portions (or 4-6 chicken fillets)
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 750ml pumpkin, peeled and cubed (3 cups… but I used 5-6 cups)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 25ml coriander leaves (optional – I left it out on the night I made this)


(HINT: Chop and cut everything you need before you start.  You won’t have time to cut the chicken pieces and tomato while the onions fry since you have to keep them moving!)

  1. Heat the Rama and fry onions, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes
  2. Add curry powder and fry for 1 minute
  3. Add chicken pieces, tomatoes, pumpkin, salt and pepper
  4. Stir well with a metal spoon
  5. Cover pan and cook slowly for 30 minutes
  6. Stir in coriander leaves and serve on rice.
