    What a brilliant idea Hannah!
    I love cooking chickpeas from scratch; I love how they make the house smell.
    This recipe is definitely a keeper. 🙂 I won’t put any chilli in there though, I’ll use ground cumin instead. I am addicted to ground cumin; they don’t sell it in large enough bags!!

    I love this BFF idea! What a great way to celebrate ‘love’! I love how this is dairy-free and gluten-free. I love the use of many different spices here. I love chickpeas for they are yummy and high in protein. However, I hate how chickpeas make me farty!

    This looks sooooo delicious Hannah~I don’t have cardamom, but I do believe I have everything else. Great presentation btw 🙂

    oh what a great combination of flavors!

    This looks delicious! Even with a cookbook, Indian food still intimidates. I’m always afraid I won’t get the spices/sauce just right and it will fall flat. But with chickpeas and pumpkin this is so tempting.

    I bet this smelled wonderful also!

    Looks yummy, and leftovers! Leftovers are what allow me to eat lunch every day, so I love them. And when I’m home alone, leftovers make up a significant portion of all my meals!

    Aww, I LOVE Fiddler! I actually just went and saw it this past weekend. Such a great musical. 🙂

    I love your BBFLove idea! I need to do that for sure. 🙂

    Nooooo stop! Don’t put the coriander in – this looks just perfect without it. I love all the spices except fresh coriander.

    And I actually felt a little bah humbug when I saw the theme for the cookbook challenge because I am not into mushy valentines day stuff but I do love a big of fun with colour and shapes!

    Ah to be inside that mind of yours … it must be going at 90 during every waking moment!

    You had me at lemongrass.

    I have Nigel’s book, but have yet to make anything from it yet. I have only heard good things about his recipes though, so can’t wait to try some things out. This dish looks very healthy and comforting at the same time!

  12. K

    This looks great and healthy too!

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL I love your first reaction to the word love! Now wouldn’t that be an interesting poll to find out what everyone’s first reactions to the L word are! 😛

    I’ll let you have the pumpkin, but I’ll raise you your song for ‘Sunrise Sunset’ – gets me every time…. *sniff*

  15. ASHLEA

    This looks delicious and almost the entire list of ingredients are not one I use on a regular basis. Looks like a fun recipe to branch out with!

  16. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    This looks delightful!! Chickpeas, pumpkin, and coconut milk are three of my favourite ingredients to cook with.

    Hah, singing both parts of a duet is the BEST.

  17. Errign

    That looks so good. I am craving chickpeas just now, so I think I shall make some dessert hummus 🙂

  18. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga)

    Hannah your recipe looks wonderful! And I love leftovers, too!

    New to your blog, your photos are outstanding!

  19. Adrian in Food Rehab

    I go weak for anything cooked with coconut milk. It’s the one thing I crave on a weekly basis after butter and chocolate of course. Looks great Hannah!

  20. Anna Johnston

    I was looking for the twist…, “Now how has she included chocolate in this” I was thinking. But….., you made a proper meal.., a real live honest to goodness proper meal without the sweet allure of sweetness. Well done…, especially coz this one looks & sounds awesome. Its got great flavours going on there hasn’t it, fresh coriander (my true love in life) would be a great addition with this one.
    High Fives girlfriend 🙂

  21. sophia

    Aaah…a lot of love in this post!! I can see why though…that chickpea with pumpkin dish look freaking good. I’m pissed that I discovered this right after I finished my last batch of chickpeas though. 😉

  22. Iron Chef Shellie

    looks fastastic. I haven’t had enough chickpeas in my lifetime.

  23. Tammy

    I stopped by today to get your raw spaghetti recipe but must say that this looks delish. I have everything in this recipe and so it may find its way to my table tonight. Thanks Hannah.

  24. ck

    A great read, you are a great writer. The dish looks gorgeous, definitely going to have to make this one. I do love Nigel Slater and have many of his books. Fabulous post, thanks for sharing.

  25. Louise

    OOOOH, this sounds completely up my alley. I’ve been rediscovering the joy of cooking chickpeas from scratch recently too. I don’t like the stinky smell in the house, but they really do taste so much fresher, and lighter than the canned ones that I think it’s worth it. And then I can make all sorts of delicious hummus too! I have some chickpeas lurking in the cupboard- I might try and make this later in the week. I love pumpkin, spices and coconut too. Actually I was just looking at the lemongrass at Woolies tonight- it looked fabulous! I didn’t buy any because I wasn’t sure what I should make- now I know! And I reckon it’s pretty low GI to boot.

  26. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Mmmmmmm, this looks wonderful! I’ve never made chickeas from scratch, but it just happens that I have a bag of dried chickpeas in my cupboard, so I think I’ll be doing something with it soon!

  27. Agnes

    YAY PROPER FOOD. I’m glad I picked a good recipe (pats self on back). 😉

  28. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Oh I do like the sound of this – pumpkin and chickpeas go so well together. And so pretty! It’s like a bowl of sunshine!

  29. (what runs) Lori

    I love you! Er… um… I mean I love this recipe! The chickpeas, the ginger, the hot red chillies… you had me at pumpkin! Looks DELICIOUS!

  30. Hannah

    Can I tell you how much I love all of these ingredients and flavors? I’ve been on a serious curry kick, and particularly yellow/coconut curry. This recipe is going on the “must make” list- All I need is a pumpkin!

  31. Tammy

    Ok, I made this one too. I already had some cooked pumpkin in the freezer so I used that and it probably changed the nature of things. I was surprised at how subtle the flavors were even with all of those spices. I liked it and so did 2 of 3 kids. Not bad.

  32. Hannah

    You didn’t by any chance notice how much chickpeas you had after you’d cooked them? I want to make this but I’m thinking I’ll stick with canned *red face* my excuse being that I have them on hand and can therefore get this into my belly sooner NOT because I’m ridiculously lazy 😉

  33. bev

    I’ve made this a bunch of times now & we LOVE it. My husband asks me to make it all the time & my 12 month old absolutely loves it too! Thanks!!

  34. Chickpea & Kabocha Squash Lemongrass Curry | the taste space

    […] finally decided to tackle Hannah’s Chickpea and Pumpkin Lemongrass Curry. Unlike most curries, this one has NO CUMIN. Blasted! A bit more sweet with the kabocha squash […]
