Pumpkin papaya curry with red lentils

Papaya and pumpkin directly from the island, healthy red lentils and all together in a delicious, creamy curry. It does not get better than this !

If you do not find papaya at home in the supermarket you can take for example pineapple or mango. If I could I would send you a few papayas from Tenerife – they taste soooo incredibly good here!
