Gary's Pumpkin and Lentil Curry with Homemade flatbread

This is the most flavoursome curry i have ever made.
The recipe Pumpkin and Lentil Curry is from Good Chef Bad Chef. If you haven't seen it - Gary is the 'bad' chef as he doesn't worry about the healthy side of food where as Janella is the 'good' chef as she is very focused on eating healthy ingredients. Actually I love both their styles and have cooked some recipes from each. Janella has introduced me to some fantastic ingredients such as quinoa.
Janella would be pleased as in this recipe I leave the skin on my pumpkin! It is also my first lentil recipe that actually resulted in lovely lentils, not a mush. And the flatbread is a revelation. So simple and diverse, I have used oil or butter or yoghurt to make it. Just don't use extra virgin olive oil, it has too much flavour.

The final product is a little on the spicy side for me, serving with rice is must. Definitely recommend, its a keeper. The curry paste recipe makes heaps - freeze some for next time.


  1. Wow the most flavoursome curry is quite an accolade! :o

  2. Just to clarify - most flavoursome curry i have ever cooked - probably not ever eaten, but its up there! :)

  3. I made this bread last night and it was fantastic!

    However, the quantities are not right.

    If you use all of the liquid in the recipe, you will end up with a sloppy mess.

    So, I used 2 1/2 cups flour, 3 tablespoons butter & 1 cup milk.


I would love for you to comment
