I've had my eye on this recipe in Vcon for a while. I love cooking with fresh pumpkin and Scott's always up for Indian dishes. Unfortunately, we found it to be quite bland.
However, I did omit the 3 tbsp of peanut oil called for (I cooked with broth/water instead). I knew I'd lose some flavor without the oil, but I didn't expect to lose all
of it. If you do decide to make this dish (and you cook without oil like me) I recommend double or tripling the spices. Scott ended up dousing his with chalula (hot sauce) and I added a lot of fresh lime juice to mine. We served it over wild rice, which helped add some flavor too.
