    It was good I had to add more salt and pepper and I served it mixed with rice on the bottom

    Delicious and easy to make! It did take me a lot longer than 15 minutes to prepare though. Dicing the butternut squash took me a while.

    In a pinch I used tandoori paste and added some extra fresh ginger. Skipped the coconut and peas as I don’t love them and used extra spinach it was super spicy and delicious

    This is delicious! I couldn’t find Korma paste so I used Thai curry paste. It took me a long time to chop everything so definitely took longer than 55 minutes. Almost twice that.. I guess I am slow?

    Super easy. I used frozen squash and spinach. My kiddo loved it. A great meatless option.

    Just made, definitely will make again, added a little bit of cayenne pepper for an extra kick but that’s just for my personal taste

    It turned out great, very good recipe. I put more curry paste and added less water than planned. Also, I uncovered it after 15min for it to be less watery. It was delicious, flavorful. Will do it again!

    Really tasty, aromatic curry! Add more spice or use a different paste for a hotter experience.

    After all was said and done this didn’t have that much flavor to it. Maybe I should have added more curry paste to account for the water i added ?

    Tasty but really watery. I would skip the water until you’re sure it needs it next time

    It turned out great It just needed more stuff to make it better like ginger and cayenne pepper to make it not so sweet

    This was so yummy. I added cavolo Nero instead of the spinach. So warming and comforting dish. Will definitely make again.

    Very good. I used some homemade curry paste and korma paste which made the flavors all that much richer. Will make again

    Pretty good. I was in a hurry so I precooked the squash (microwave 10 minutes) but I was a bit too much. As a result it didn’t cook so much in the korma. I’ll know better next time. I added baked cashew nuts.

    I used aMadras paste and a little more than suggested 😬. I also used frozen spinach instead of fresh (about 5-6 "balls"). This is a very refreshing curry, absolutely delicious.
