When Kalyani announced
the combo of Pumpkin and Chilles for Magic Mingle the only though I
had was parathas. But since that is quite a staple in my place the kids
were not keen.

Then my FIL did vegetable shopping and
came back with ½ kg of brinjals that are shunned by the girls, I had no
option but mask them.  Then the fridge threw up some surprises!! I
found some par boiled pumpkin and baby corn! What better then to make this
delicious Thai Red Curry?
