Pumpkin Curry with Chicken
Some nights just nothing in the fridge seems appealing, not even a bowl of cereal is what I want. Tonight was one of those nights, so I started digging around in the cupboard, and this curry is what evolved. I combined one can of coconut milk with about a tablespoon of Thai red curry paste and some freshly grated ginger, and then added about a cup of pumpkin puree, two diced carrots, and maybe a tablespoon of fish sauce. This all cooked down for a few minutes, and then I added six boneless skinless chicken thighs, each cut into six pieces, some chicken broth, and a little brown sugar. This all simmered for 2o-30 min., and then I adjusted to taste with lime juice and soy sauce, and served the whole lot over gingered rice.
