I have absolutely been jonesing for raw Indian food, and so I found a recipe, made it my own, and the results were nothing short of incredible! You could barely tell that it was raw. And ohmygosh it was so easy! Indian raw food – it’s what’s for dinner!

I found the recipe on which I based this on the GoneRaw.com website. However, I didn’t have all of the ingredients for which it called, and my substitutions made a great recipe even easier!

For this raw Indian recipe you will need one small pumpkin. Whole Foods often has organic pie pumpkins, which are perfect. That said, the smallest pumpkin you can find should be adequate.

Raw Food Pumpkin Curry – Indian Style

2 cups pumpkin (deseeded, peeled, and cubed)
1/4 cup onion, chopped (doesn’t have to be finally chopped as it will be pureed)
1/2 cup red or yellow pepper, chopped (doesn’t have to be finally chopped as it will be pureed)
1 teaspoon ground ginger, or one slice fresh ginger about the size of a nickel
1/3 cup raisins
2 Tablespoons coconut butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup shredded or powdered coconut, or coconut flour
1 Tablespoon garam masala paste or one Tablespoon garam masala powder plus just enough vegetable oil to blend the powder into a paste
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt)
filtered water
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro
1/2 cup frozen peas

Soak the raisins in about 1/2 cup water while you are prepping the pumpkin, onion and pepper. Also let the frozen peas sit out at room temperature while you are prepping the rest of the ingredients.

In your Vitamix, blender, or food processor, blend all of the ingredients (including the water in which you soaked the raisins) except the cilantro and peas. Reserve the cilantro and peas for later.

Once everything is pureed and very smooth, add more water until it is the consistency you want it to be.

Transfer the puree to a bowl that will fit in your dehydrator, and mix in the cilantro and the peas.

Warm the curry in your dehydrator, set at 115 degrees, for a half hour or so until thoroughly warmed. (Can also be eaten straight from the blender, but warmed it is incredible.)
