We had this curry for dinner last night and it was delish. Although not traditional, we served it with basmati rice - which we enjoyed & recommend.

Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

This was a very good curry, fragrant and flavoursome, very easy and reasonably quick to assemble, so suitable for a mid-week supper. I used chicken thighs, and otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The squash is very good in the coconut milk, it adds colour and goes beautifully with the chicken. I made this for PAC Spring 2008, and recommend it thoroughly!
