Caribbean Pumpkin and Pea Curry

Still on the mend from our man-flu we needed some vegetables in our system, so we turned to trusy old Thrive On Five for some inspiration. They have a great range of spicy recipes and we’d not trid this one before.
The list of ingredients is long but healthy – squash, tomatoes, onions, peppers, mango, peas, ginger, garlic, turmeric, allspice, curry powder, coconut milk, black eyed beans and… drumroll please… a scotch bonnet chilli.

We have a mixed history with these fiery chillis. I’ve had nice meals made with them in the past, but Mark once made a curry so hot it was completely inedible. This recipe works well though – pierce the chilli and let it sit in the curry as it simmers, then fish it out before serving. Spicy but not too spicy.
