Pumpkin & Chicken Curry

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Friday’s here again!
For all of you who like nice and heart-warming homemade food, here it is – Pumpkin & Chicken Curry.
This is definitely one of my favourite comfort foods – it’s sweet and creamy and bursts with flavours.
I had made a butternut squash curry before but this one is slightly different.
I also added some chicken which made it even more filling.
But even if you don’t add the chicken, it’ll still taste amazing.
To serve it –  get some naan bread or simply get a side of coriander rice as I did.

Here’s what you need.
