Lentil Korma Curry with Tray Roasted Pumpkin

lentil korma curry

This recipe is made healthier by swapping cream for Greek yoghurt, which helps to lighten up the kilojoules without compromising on the creamy, comfort food flavour. 

Did you know, owing to their beautiful orange colour, pumpkins are a great source of beta carotene, which when converted to vitamin A in the body is needed for healthy vision. Pumpkins are also a great source of vitamin C, which supports the body’s immune system.
