I’ve made these 3 times already. I will probably scarf up a couple more pumpkins before they leave the grocery store because I love these roasted Thai curry pumpkin seeds so much. I remember when I was a kid that roasting pumpkin seeds were ALMOST as good as the candy. And because we only ate them once a year made them that much more special. This recipe is really simple to make and if you love roasted pumpkin seeds I think you will love these. They have a bit of sweetness and a lot of spice and they are salty and crunchy and yum!

Want to make the recipe bit can’t see when to add the sugar?

Maybe you should give them a try because the Thai curry flavor is great!
