Tasty Thursday: Pumpkin Coconut Curry w/ Chicken Thighs

Updated: Nov 9, 2017

I am obsessed with Indian food. I used to make it all the time but then kind of fell off the wagon. I have so many spices in my cabinet and they are probably going to expire soon so I am trying to use them up. I also love fall foods so I tried to think of the way to combine the two and thats when it hit me….Pumpkin Coconut Curry. I just kind of winged it and I am so happy with the results. This dish is going to go on my favorites list and just may become a regular in our house. Its actually super easy to make and doesn’t take long at all.
