Let's start making curry. Wash and clean the pumpkin. Then cut it into small cubes. Heat the pan on the stove and add oil to it. Same time chop the onion and garlic cloves into small pieces. When the oil is hot, put the onion, garlic, and pumpkin on a pan. Fry for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the pumpkin has softened. Add the soy flakes to the pan. The pan should have enough liquid coming from the pumpkin. If the liquid, however, has evaporated, add a little water to soften the soy flakes. Fry for another 10 minutes. Now the pumpkin should be soft and soy flakes ready. Turn off the stove and add the spices. Stir well. Allow it to cool down slightly. We're going to make cauliflower rice.

Place the cauliflower rice on the plate and the pumpkin curry on top. For decoration, you can add yogurt and coriander leaf. Bon Appetit!
