Pumpkin and _________? (What do you think would be good, nontraditional flavors to go with pumpkin?)

What about...

cardamom
chipotle
mayan 'hot' bitter spicy chocolate

My husband claims he saw an interesting recipe for pumpkin curry that I need to find and try. I was also kind of thinking how else might one make pumpkin so that it doesn't seem reminiscent of pumpkin pie?

The furthest afield I got in musing about this was wondering how good or horrible a cardamom-pumpkin ice cream (kind of like a khulfi) shot through with mayan cayenne hot fudge ribbon (not sweet) would be.

Then I was wondering what would happen if you roasted pumpkin and did something to it involving chipotle.

Any other wild pumpkin ideas?
