The sauce is quite runny.  You may llike to add a tablespoon or two of cornflour mixed into a paste with same amount of water for the last 10 mins of cooking to help it thicken a bit.


This also tastes very good the next day when the pumpkin has also thickened it a bit.  Freezes well too.

  • The beef was lovely and

    The beef was lovely and tender and the pumpkin gave the curry a lovely flavour. I completely forgot to cook rice and as the sauce was runny we did miss it to absorb the liquid.

    Overall, a delicious curry, but one for the weekend given the cooking time.
