It was alright, although definitely not anything special. I blended it into a soup as I felt that the butternut squash had an odd texture. It was lovely as a soup with some added cinnamon.

Used twice as much red curry paste (Tesco) but still bland. Also a bit stodgy - but maybe as I served with rice as I didn't have any naan.

This recipe didn't work for me - through no fault of it's own! I decided to use Green curry paste as I prefer it, and got the Bart's one as their stuff is usually good but this time it was a disappointment, all heat an no flavour. But I will definitely make this again but with a different green curry paste.

love medium currys, like to give them all a once over and usually enjoy them. i liked this one.

Substituted butternut squash for baby potatoes and cauliflower. Boiled the potatoes before adding. Had to cook for longer to get the cauliflower cooked through but would par-boil next time.
Everyone thought this was very tasty and it was finished off quite easily!

beware of the thai curry paste as sometime it has fish as an ingredient. this is the second recipe on this site that i have come across as not being vegetarian, what's going on?

tho I do not like Butternut Squash, and would not make this, thank you for bringing the Thai fish paste to our notice, never used it as am a bit faddy, but the word vegetarian is used loosely by a number of Chefs. Have just made an Aubergine and Mushroom curry for my dinner. Tina

Thai Curry paste usually has fish oil as an ingredient so not really suitable for Veggies surely?

I am about to try this recipe and would like to have it for lunch but I would like to know how many servings it makes as it does not say.

Thank you
