Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the potato, squash and aubergine with 2 tbsp curry paste and 2 tbsp oil in a large roasting tin. Season, then roast for 30 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Fry the onions in the remaining oil in a large pan until softened and golden – add a splash of water if they start to dry out. Stir in the remaining curry paste, cook for 3 mins, then add the passata, coconut milk and 100ml water. Simmer for a few mins.
  3. When the vegetables are roasted, tip them into the sauce with the peppers and courgettes. Simmer for 10-15 mins until tender. Scatter with coriander and serve.

I loved this curry, made it for some of my veggie friends,and it went down well with my meat eating friends too! They really enjoyed it.

Delishious! Nice and creamy and filled with all my favourite vegetables. Only downside is that it takes a bit longer than my usual veggie curry - but it was definitely worth it!

was a great success! My daughter brought a friend over, and she wanted the recipe.
Her friend had not even noticed it was a vegetarian dish (but of course the best vegetarian dishes are the ones that can exist on their own merits, such as this one. Not the ones where meat has been replaced with some soy substitute).

I did some things differently, no potato or butternut, but had a sweet potato (also orange). Had a cauliflower, so put some rosettes in and a box of mushrooms, which I also added.

So actually, I used the recipe more for inspiration.

But still, I do recommend this one.

I made this curry for a crowd, some meat eaters but most not, including me. All enjoyed it very much, the carnivors didn't notice there wasn't any meat in. It was easy, cheap and most of all delicious. I'll certainly be making this again!

Lovely mild curry, served at a dinner party for the vegetarian guest, but everyone enjoyed it. Will definitely do this again and may well make a batch for the freezer. Made my own Tikka Masala paste (used Jamie Oliver's recipe from the Ministry of Food....fab recipes in there for all curry pastes and it is worth the extra effort!) also served with Maharaja Lamb from Mridula Baljekar Complete Indian Cookbook and her Tomato Salad. Followed with Delia's recipe for Coconut ice ream with lime syrup.

We really liked this! After reading other comments I didn't add the extra water and the sauce was lovely. I don't quite know why but having potato in a veggie curry seemed such a treat! Real comfort food. We ate ours with Naan. Leftovers saved for later in the week - probably served with chicken kebabs next time around I think. I will definitely make this again.

I did like it. Made a whole batch and froze some. Used sweet potato instead of butternut squash, because I love it.

Cooked this for a dinner party when entertaining a mixture of vegetarians & avowed carnivores...everybody loved it! Superb combination of flavours. Served with the usual rice & mixtures of naan breads plus raita & natural yoghurt with spoonful of mint sauce mixed in, and mango chutney-delicious. Will definitely repeat this meal.

Tried this just now. I didn't get aubergine or courgettes as the supermarket sold out but threw in some carrots and cauliflower instead. Also added a bit more potato. It was really lovely. Plenty left over for another meal. Freezes well.

Easy to make. Makes a large amount, but can be frozen to have again another time.

Wonderful. I used 200ml tom puree + 1/2 pint veg stock instead of the passata and water, and it came out a treat.

amazing recipe, full of flavours and healthy! I added garlic for an extra kick and used chopped tomatoes instead of passata (only realised when I was pouring it) and balti paste, still it was delicious! Will definitely make again, it's much less boring than a simple homemade chicken tikka masala!

This is now my favourite curry! Even my sceptical meat eating husband thoroughly enjoyed it. Next time I'm going to make a big batch and freeze portions.
