This recipe has an exotic flavour thanks to a simple seasoning of fenugreek seeds and turmeric, two magic spices. Fenugreek seeds have a distinctive aroma reminiscent of curry. For variety, you could substitute orange sweet potato, carrot or parsnip for the pumpkin.
If you're using whole fenugreek seeds, grind them in a spice mill (a coffee grinder reserved for spices works well).
This is amazingly good. The only thing I added extra was water and mustard seeds (or maybe caraway, not sure lol) and a little sea salt but not much. So tasty - we'll be making it again and passing this recipe on. - 02 Dec 2010
