20 Recipes That Prove Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Are Meant to Be Pumpkin and cream cheese are proof that opposites attract. Pumpkin brings a natural sweetness — often flavored with warm, earthy spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger — while cream cheese is rich, tart, and tangy. This is my favourite recipe for curry. I have made it with chicken and sirloin steak as well as the pork and it always turns out great. When I make it with steak I use beef broth instead of chicken broth. I like to use Mahesh Curry Powder which is tan coloured, very flavourful,and somewhat hotter then the yellow stuff from the grocery store.
