Pumpkin Soup with Red curry Paste recipe

The creaminess of the pumpkin soup mostly comes from coconut milk which I have used and the smokiness from the roasted pumpkin which is gently spiced, but I made sure that the pumpkin flavor shines above all.This Thai Pumpkin soup with addition of coconut milk and Thai Red curry paste is a classic twist to the regular Pumpkin Soup.In this recipe I have traded heavy cream for coconut milk which results is a flavor-packed comfort food with subtle hints of Thai flavors. The best part of this Soup is the red curry paste which is made at home from scratch. This is really easy to make as long as you have most of the ingredients on hand. If you have shallots, lemongrass, few red chillies and some ginger and garlic , you can make this amazing Red Thai Curry paste at home. A perfect dish to welcome winter with open arms.
