Looking to whip up something quick and Halloween-ish, but with an interesting twist, I created this dip based on Indian Pumpkin Curry. It brings together the great spices from that dish like curry, turmeric, ginger, and cumin along with light coconut milk and a can of pumpkin puree. I served mine with fresh veggies, but you could also make my homemade pita chips.
