…for pumkin potato curry with spinach:
Peel and finely chop the onion & garlic. Deseed the pumpkin and cut into small pieces or cubes. Peel the potatoes & also cut into small pieces or cubes. Wash the spinach leaves, pat dry & set aside.
Now heat up a pot or pan with a good dash of oil, sweat onions & garlic over low to medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes, turning occasionally. Then add the pumpkin & potato pieces, also add 1 heaping teaspoon each of curry powder & sweet paprika and season with a good pinch of salt & pepper.
Mix everything together well, then pour in the coconut milk and tomato passata, as well as a dash of water (if neccessary) so that the pumpkin and potatoes are completely covered with liquid.
