Combine the curry powder, garlic and hot water;  mix until blended.  Add 1 cup water and salt.  Heat to a simmer, stirring constantly.  Add the pumpkin seeds, and simmer for 5 minutes; drain.  Spread the seeds on a cookie sheet, brush with a little melted butter and sprinkle with additional salt, and perhaps some cayenne pepper.  Toast under the broiler until lightly browned.  Makes 2 cups.    About 40 seeds equals about 7 carbs. Makes 2 cups (32 tablespoons)
