Let’s be completely honest here, this butternut squash curry recipe is a million miles from being authentic, however, the ingredients combine to create the most mouth-watering, eclectic mix of  flavours that this small fact pales into insignificance in no time.


  • 5 small onions (380g – diced very small)
  • 5 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • 1 whole squash (cubed)
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 aubergines
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp each of cumin, fennel seeds and chilli powder and fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp each of turmeric, corriander, garam masala and paprika
  • Seeds from 20 cardomom pod
  • 1 cinnamon stick


  1. First make your gravy:-
  2. Put about 1 inch of water into a large pan or casserole dish. Heat the water and add the onion and garlic.

  5. Now prepare your veg:-
    1. Wrap the sweet potato in foil
    2. Cube the flesh of the squash and wrap in foil parcels
    3. Slice the aubergine (1/2″) then wrap in foil (for best results salt the aubergine slices for 30 mins beforehand)
