Pumpkin Curry is a traditional Nepalese dish that’s loved for its sweet and savoury flavour. Butternut pumpkin is sauteed and then slowly simmered in a rich curry sauce, making for a comforting and hearty meal. This recipe is sure to transport you to the heart of Nepal with every bite!

Let’s see the recipe for this delicious dish:


  • 1 medium-sized butternut pumpkin 
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp ginger (grated)
  • 2 green chillies (chopped)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • ½ cup water
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish



  • In a sizable pan, warm the vegetable oil over a medium flame. Once hot, add the cumin seeds and let them crackle until they release their fragrant scent.
  • Now, add the finely diced onion to the pan. Sauté until it adopts a golden hue, usually around 5-7 minutes.
  • Add minced garlic, freshly grated ginger, and chopped green chillies into the pan. Continue to sauté for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and salt into the pan. Stir thoroughly to ensure even distribution of spices.
  • Add in the butternut pumpkin pieces and stir well, making sure each piece is nicely coated with the spice blend.
  • Pour in the tomato puree and water, then stir again to combine. Cover the pan and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes until the pumpkin is soft and the flavours melded together.
  • Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Then, remove the curry from the heat.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves before serving. Enjoy!
