Here's something I kitchen-conjured.
- 1 large cooked and peeled sweet potato, cut in chunks
- 1/4 cooked, de-seeded, and chopped medium-sized kabocha (Japanese pumpkin; no need to peel)
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries, rehydrated with boiled water
- 1/4 cup Japanese mayo (or whatever you've got)
- 3 T. plain yogurt
- 1 T. milk (I used soy)
- 2 t. sugar
- 3/4 t. curry powder
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/2 t. garam masala
- 1/4 t. powdered ginger
Mix it all together and chill. That's it.
Then eat (preferably outdoors with chopsticks and grilled meats and veggies).
Verdict? I took two bowls of it and it went like lightning. I managed to sneak in a few bites and absolutely loved it. Sweet and creamy from the potatoes and kabocha, a bit sour from the cranberries, and perfect fall spiciness from the curry and garam masala.
