The creaminess of the pumpkin soup mostly comes from coconut milk which I have used and the smokiness from the roasted pumpkin which is gently spiced, but I made sure that the pumpkin flavor shines above all.
This Thai Pumpkin soup with addition of coconut milk and Thai Red curry paste is a classic twist to the regular Pumpkin Soup.
