Pumpkin & Green Bean Red Curry01

Pumpkin is widely reckoned as a super food, rich in nutrients, high in fiber and low in calories. The best part, for me, is its beautiful sweet taste. Apart from making creamy pumpkin soup, I often cook various savoury or sweet dishes with this super food. This pumpkin red curry dish that I made the other day, became a hit in the family. Although no meat was added, the taste was very good. It perfectly goes well with a bowl of steamed rice.
