When Cattle Decapitation called its third album To Serve Man, it wasn't joking. Here's guitarist Josh Elmore's recipe for delicious pumpkin curry.


· 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

· 1 onion, sliced

· 4 garlic cloves, crushed

· 1 teaspoon ground cumin

· 2 teaspoons ground coriander

· 1 fresh green chili, finely chopped

· 1-3/4 cups coconut milk

· 1 cup hot water

· 1 pumpkin (1-1/2 pounds) cut into 2-inch cubes

· 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

· Salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Sauté the onion and garlic until lightly browned.

Add cumin, chili, and coriander; sauté for one more minute.

Add coconut milk, pumpkin, and water, then bring to a boil.

Lower heat and simmer gently for 10 to 15 minutes, until the pumpkin is tender.

Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the chopped cilantro.

Serve hot with rice.
