Pumpkin Curry

  • 2 lbs pumpkin
  • 14oz (1 package) Firm tofu, optional
  • 4 cups (2 cans) coconut milk (can use light milk, and/or sub in a cup of water)
  • 3-5 tablespoons Vegetarian Red Curry Paste
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 chili peppers (fresh red thai, or 1 jalapeno)
  • 2" fresh galangal (peeled and thinly sliced), or 2 T galangal powder (or ½ equivalent ginger)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 sprigs Thai basil

We used a marina de chiogga pumpkin, but any firm, yellow-flesh, slightly sweet/nutty pumpkin will do.
