Too late perhaps, but Nigella Lawson has a fantastic recipe for prawn and pumpkin curry. Done in coconut milk, it's the Ballacks.

The pumpkin absorbs the spices and flavour brilliantly.

(Tip, par cook it and let the spices infuse, you ruin it by over-cooking the pumpkin.)

Wouldn't bother trying to make it with a Tesco quality pumpkin as they taste of nowt. Need a proper onefrom somewhere like an asian grocers or farmshop.

Please explain.

She's a right fat cow. Mind you, I'd love to help ice her buns.

You should be making something British.

Like bacon and turnip soup.

Sounds like something you'd get in a Rumanian prison.

Bud !..i made a really nice (but hot) Pumpkin and Corriander soup (it was really a broth)...

cook the pumpkin carvings in water till soft.

red pepper, garlic, salt and pepper with 1/2 of the into a liquidiser (or hand held mixer).

add some coconut milk (not too much), mix again...

add in the pumpkin and add the rest of the corriander to the mixer/liquidiser..

remove to a sauce pan, add the rest of the coconut milk and gently stir under heat, to perfection...

serve with fresh uncut bread......

Prawn and pumpkin sounds rank.
