Halloween recipes don’t come so easily to me… however I do love cooking with pumpkin. Pumpkin curries are always winners at our place but this week I mixed things up a little and put together a pumpkin dahl. This is pure and simple cooking at it’s best. One pot, a handful of ‘cheap as chips’ ingredients and wa-lah… dinner is served.
