Simple: Butternut Squash Curry


Hello lovely people of the internet!

I will be starting a new series called simple. It will be based around the easy things I have learned while living on my own that many of you may need in you lives.  For this first one I’m showing an easy to cook dish!

Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m pretty keen at learning new recipes all the time, especially as I have to cook a lot!

One of my favourite recipes which is always easy is curry! My twist on this- Butternut Squash curry!


1 Mug of brown or white rice (I choose brown because it’s supposedly healthier?)
1 Chicken or vegetable stock- 200ml
1 Tablespoon (or a big dollop!) of Madras curry paste
1 tin of coconut milk
1 teaspoon of tumeric
Chilli flakes- I normally just sprinkle a few it depends how hot you like it
1 clove of garlic – crushed
sprinkle of salt
sprinkle of pepper
1 Butternut squash
1 Pepper
1 Onion


In a pan mix together the can of coconut milk and madras curry paste. I know Madras is quite a spice so this will be counterbalanced by the coconut milk. If you like it hot add more madras paste than necessary.

Slice the pepper and onion and add to same pan.

Cut up the butternut squash into chunks. I choose to not peel the butternut squash as its bloody hard work but that is up to you! Add to the pan.

Add in the turmeric,chilli flakes, garlic, salt and pepper to the pan. Stir thoroughly. ( If you want you can add in chicken- I normally do at which point also add in the chicken)

Add in the stock and bring the mixture to boil.

While this is starting to boil, add the rice to a pan and bring that to boil.

Once the curry pot has boiled turn the heat down and allow to simmer for 30 minutes.

Once the rice has boiled bring to simmer and keep an eye on it until ready. Brown rice normally takes longer but if it is white rice, do this nearer the end.


Remember to stir regularly and once the butternut squash is soft and the mixture and simmered down a bit its ready to eat!

Curry is always an easy one to make so you can edit this recipe how you like.

Whats your favourite recipe to make?

Lots of love,
