      Squash, hurray! Very nice combined with cranberries. I took the past reviewer's advice and swapped the amounts of curry powder and cinnamon. Despite the spices, I did find it rather bland. It was missing... something... maybe extra spices and a touch of citrus juice would liven it up. Still- it's simple, very healthy and does taste good!! Worth keeping!

      The butternut bonanza of 2008 continues and my quest for appealing dishes using this ingredient continues. Made this for dinner as a light meatless dinner and enjoyed it quite a bit. The flavors were not what I would consider a curry as the coriander and cinnamon were certainly more prominent and added a milder and sweeter flavor to the dish. (So much so, I think this would make a great side at the holidays and offer a wonderful alternative to candied yams.) If you wanted the heat and sweet combination, the addition of additional curry and less cinnamon would work here. I did not make the pumpkin seed topping but realized that the textural contrast they introduced was missing and instead added some chopped toasted cashews. Thanks Syd.

      This was delicious! I did make one change. I found I was out of curry powder, so used garam masala, halved the recipe, added the optional chutney(mango). Going into my favorites. Am thinking about serving this for Thanksgiving. Thanks Syd!
