Very clean meal but I do advise to mix the spice in the yougurt. don’t just pour the spice in before the yougurt because the oil cooks the cumin powder fast and makes the meal taste bitter or burnt. I also advise after the slow cook from the oven, smash a little of the pumpkin to give the curry and little pumpkin sauce flavor.
