Sri Lankan Pumpkin Chickpea Curry-in-a-Hurry + Orange Chai Creme Soda

Kids in the Kitchen! Recipe Ketch-up!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Like pasta, curries are incredibly adaptable and have strayed far from the original, traditional recipe, which is usually a strong indication of how much the original dish was loved.

Historically, when travelers and colonizers have attempted to recreate some dish they encountered on their journey, the result is always adapted and changed in some great way back at home. Ingredients are different, traditional methods are unknown, secrets are not shared. THIS is the magic of traveling to a place and tasting the real thing. It’s also the magic of getting a glimpse into the culture and place by cooking up flavors and dishes that are as close as possible to what’s authentic.

Though this curry is not necessarily authentic, it IS fast and satisfying and encompasses flavor profiles that are used in Sri Lankan curries, so far as we can tell, like vinegar and cinnamon. Did you know that 80-90% of the world’s cinnamon comes from Sri Lanka!? There are many more facts to know about this beautiful island country. Curry in a Hurry: what’s not to love?! We hope you adore this recipe as much as we do.
