Pumpkin Curry and Coconut Taro

Project: PermEco Inc.

Posted by Zaia Kendall about 10 years ago

2 lovely simple dishes, easy to make with your homegrown vegies and meat, and yummy for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Pumpkin and beef curry on the left, mildly spiced coconut Taro on the right and a dollop of ChilliChoko sauce…

We currently have a lot of pumpkin. We also have a fair bit of Taro which was dug up and I had to do something with. So I made a pumpkin and beef curry and a mildly spiced coconut Taro.

I started by putting the unpeeled whole Taro in a large pot, added water and put it on the stove to boil. Then I put some ghee to melt in a pot on the stove and cut 500gr of homegrown beef into cubes. I added the beef to the pot and stirred it on occasion, to brown it on all sides. Whilst the beef was browning I peeled, pitted and cut up some pumpkin (around 1/2 a medium to large pumpkin). I added the cubed pumpkin to the beef once it had browned. I added 1 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1 1/2 tsp of my favourite powdered curry mix and a can of coconut cream. Then I put the lid on and brought it to the boil. When it boiled I lowered the heat to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pumpkin was soft.

Once the Taro had boiled for around 20 minutes to half an hour, I drained the water and ran cold water over the Taro in a colander in the sink. With a small sharp knife, I cut and peeled away the skin and any blemishes, and chopped the Taro in medium size cubes. I put the Taro back in a pot and added coconut cream and some chopped up Italian parsley, one large leaf of mustard greens, some basil leaves and some endive, and added about 1/4 of a chopped up red chilli. I added 1 tsp of sea salt and warmed the pot until the greens were nice and soft.

To add some extra heat, you can add a dollop of my ChilliChoko sauce.

Great alternative to having rice with your curry, and a lovely way to prepare Taro. The taro tastes great for breakfast with some sausages and eggs too!!

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
