Curry is one of the most beneficial culinary spices to include in your diet. In fact, it contains turmeric, cinnamon, and chili. The combination of all these elements not only brings a lot of flavor, but is also considered a source of phytonutrients with antioxidant capacity. We’re going to show you how Gordon Ramsay would prepare an exquisite pumpkin curry.

Pumpkin curry ingredients

To make an excellent pumpkin curry you will need the following ingredients:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Turmeric
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 4 tomatoes
  • Water and salt
  • Nutmeg
  • Olive oil
  • Sweet paprika
  • Powdered cloves
  • Black pepper
  • Cumin in grain form
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 kilo of pumpkin
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 2 cups of mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons of grated coconut

The proportions of these ingredients will vary from one brand to another, but the result will be fantastic anyway.

You can try to balance, among other things, the amount of spiciness. For some, excessive spiciness may be a problem when consuming this dish. However, other people will demand this flavor to enjoy the curry to the maximum.

The pepper plays a preponderant role in the recipe, since it grants part of the characteristic spiciness of the curry.

Instructions of this Gordon Ramsay recipe

You need to begin by browning the garlic in a frying pan with olive oil. To do so, peel and chop them.

After a few minutes, add the finely chopped onions and continue with the cooking process. When these vegetables are tender, add the sliced mushrooms.

At the same time, you should cut and peel the pumpkin, always in pieces of the same size. This will be sautéed with the rest of the vegetables and then salt is added to balance the sweetness.

When all the vegetables are well cooked, the spices can be included. The proportion of each one of them will be to the taste of each person.

The only thing left to do is to add the peeled and chopped tomatoes and stir from time to time so that they combine correctly. A few minutes before the end of the cooking time, add a little coconut milk, and leave it simmering over a medium heat for 7 minutes to finish it off.

It’s recommended to serve it hot with some white rice.

Benefits of curry

Curry, as we have already mentioned, is composed of a combination of culinary spices. It has several health benefits.

The first thing to highlight is the anti-inflammatory capacity of curry, brought mainly by the turmeric. This is shown by research published in the Journal of Immunology. Internal inflammation is one of the main courses of many chronic pathologies.

Moreover, curry is a source of antioxidants. These compounds neutralize the formation of free radicals and their subsequent accumulation in the body’s tissues. This effect reduces the incidence of complex diseases, according to a study published in the Journal of Complementary & Integrative Medicine.

Finally, we must mention the powerful effect exerted by cinnamon, another ingredient of curry. It’s a spice with hypoglycemic power. Thanks to this, it has anti-diabetic properties, and it has been shown to improve the control of blood sugar levels and reduce insulin resistance.
