Indian Spiced Pumpkin Scones- Frugal Friday


With cooler weather finally arrived, it’s quite nice to have the oven on again for longer periods. No sweltering in the kitchen, followed by desperate throwing open of windows to catch a passing breeze. Instead, an inviting warm cosiness, that encourages lingering within the kitchen and regular taste testing.

Team that kitchen warmth up, with the last of the afternoon sun and a hungry belly- and scones it is. Not just any scones though. Savoury scones, that speak of autumn colours and warming spices.

Just the thing to go with a chunky soup.


Indian Spiced Pumpkin Scones

50g softened butter

1 cup mashed local pumpkin

1 tsp dried coriander

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp tumuric

1/2 tsp cardamom

1 1/2 tsp salt

2 1/2- 3 cups s/r flour*

(*depends on the water content of your pumpkin)

Cream butter and spices together. Whisk in all other ingredients except the flour. Fold in flour with a knife. Turn out on to a floured surface and lightly knead, just until the ingredients come together. Make a roundish shape circle with the dough, and roughly divide. Pop on to a baking tray and bake at 210C for about 20 minutes.

Cheap, easy, and seasonal.

  1. Aw Brydie, your baked goods always look amazing. I love the fact that these scones have been baked in a round. Reminds me of damper. I always put these same spices on my roast pumpkin so I can imagine that these scones would be so delicious…. beautifully soft and fragrant. I’ll definitely try them this winter, possibly with lashings of butter and some good soup. Yum!


    • Thanks Laura. I was making pumpkin dhal one day with all these spices and I thought….Oooo, I wonder if these would work with scones? And yep, I think it does. (And lashings of butter is pretty much compulsory.)


      • You’re super clever. Yum, just reading this makes me want to stay home and make scones (I am about to go to work, darn it!). Plus, I’ve never tried pumpkin dhal! I need to try it! xx
