Very, very easy to double for large numbers of people. It can be served with rice or large flat breads for people to tear bits off and scoop up the curry. It can be frozen once cooked and cooled and the vegetables can be subbed 6 chicken breasts if you so desire.

The whole family liked this recipe. I completely changed the veg and also added 2 teaspoons of garam masala to suit the tastes in our family! One to repeat.

This was excellent. My husband doesn't care for butternut squash so I used carrots instead. I also roasted some onions with the vegetables because we love roasted onions. I didn't have any corriander leaves - so I added a teaspoon of Thai green Curry Paste to intensify the flavour. Served it with Basmati rice and it was DELICIOUS!

Very good. I, too, added more tomatoes and a touch more coconut milk. I also added some cayenne pepper and paprika to make it really spicy, but I suppose that's just personal preference. It's the kind of recipe where you can modify it with all kinds of spices and it would still work.
