Preheat oven to 220°C, gas mark 7.
In a large roasting dish, add the pumpkin and 1 tbsp of the oil, salt and half the garam masala powder and toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes or until tender. Keep warm.
Bring the stock to a boil in a medium saucepan then reduce to a low heat to keep warm.
Place the leeks, ginger, garlic, lemongrass and red chilli in a food processor and blend to form a paste.
Heat the remaining oil in a high-walled frying pan and add in the leek paste, stirring for approx. 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add in the lentils and maple syrup. Stir until combined. Add stock and half the coconut milk. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the lentils are tender, approx. 10 minutes.
Blanch the sugar snaps in a pot of boiling water and drain and refresh in iced water. Roughly chop the coriander.
Divide the curry between 4 bowls, divide the rest of the coconut milk between the bowls and top with the roasted pumpkin, sugar snaps, coriander, coconut flakes, cashews and nigella seeds or sesame seeds.
