The Spice Is Right: Pumpkin Curry
Usually relegated to sweet and savory, pumpkin gets to live dangerously in Indian and Thai curries. Brilliant in color and bold in flavor, pumpkin stands out in dishes like Jungle Curry at Chadaka Thai in Burbank, Calif. Super-spicy and with no coconut milk, the Jungle stars pumpkin, green beans, baby corn, mushrooms, bamboo shoots and holy basil with chicken, pork or beef.
