Halloween means for me only one thing - pumpkins. Every year I cook a few dishes with this nice vegetable. This year Thai cuisine and new polish dishes are my inspirations.
The first dish is a soup. The recipe combines elements of Polish cuisine and Asian spices. The soup has a rich flavour and beautiful bouquet of smell. When I prepared the dish this nice smell was in whole my apartment. I felt like in oriental country though behind the window it was Irish grey day.
Try this soup. It is good for a cold day.
0,5kg sliced pumpkin in big pieces
5 tbsp of oil
3 tbsp of yellow curry powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
2 cloves chopped garlic

The mixture spread on every piece of pumpkin and put on baking tray. Bake for 25 minutes at 200 degrees.
After baking, pieces of pumpkin and water put into blender and mix well.
Transfer pumpkin cream to pot and add coconut milk, Soya sauce and fish sauce and cook soup.
