Made this 06/11/17. It took a lot longer to cook than stated. Needed double the curry base than stated plus some salt and garlic granules but was still fairly bland. Might be better with some green ginger and spring onions? Used a whole squash as stated but this was probably too much squash, perhaps substitute some for cauliflower but this will need adding towards the end of cooking time. Also, make sure you cut the squash up into small, bite-size, chunks rather than 'thick slices' or it will never cook. The best bit was the naan bread.

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.

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?
