Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup From Zanzibar

This recipe is my version of the kind of spicy soups and sauces cooked in coconut milk from Zanzibar and the other cities on the coast of Kenya. They are Indian spices, but they are cooked with an African flair, and the aroma will infuse your entire house. This soup is creamy yet light and sweet from the pumpkins and carrots. With the spices that give it depth, it will quickly become a classic in your family.
