Pumpkin Curry with Naan Bread

I've been such a slacker lately, I've been slacking all over the place: blogging, cooking, baking, cleaning etcetera.... Had a lot on my mind. But everything's okay now: the work situation has been sorted. On November 2nd I started my new old job... My contract at the job agency ended and was not prolonged due to the economic situation. However the company I was temping at was so content with my work that they offered me the position I was temping at for the last year. Big Yay!

On to todays dish: Pumpkin Curry with Naan Bread. This dish was featured on the recipe display at Albert Heyn, the supermarket I shop at. It's a vegetarian dish and I thought it would be perfect for this time of year, the recipe can be found here (in Dutch!).

This curry is quite easy to make and actually one fo the first dishes in which I got to use the stalks of coriander. The pumpkin I used had thin husk and it wasn't necessary to peel it, because the husk gets soft when you stew the pumpkin

This is a delicious vegetarian dish, it tastes really smooth and subtle. I expected it to have a bit more of a kick somehow. This dish contains 430 kilocalories per portion and 8,5 WW Points
