    Very spicy flavorful dish! Crunchy peanut butter is a must! I added some evaporated milk to the pureed pumpkin and then to the sauce at the end to thin it out a bit and made it a bit more creamy. Delicious on rice. I used jalapeno (seeds and all), since I didn't have the chile pepper. . . had a nice kick to it. Next time I think I'll add some red pepper to the sauteed vegies, as well, and maybe some fresh chopped cilantro on top. Would also be good made with chicken. Thank you for the recipe. . . great way to use some of our leftover pumpkin from Halloween.  -  02 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
