Malaysian Butternut Squash Curry
Serves 3
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of grated ginger
  • 2 tsps of Malaysian Curry powder (or use a regular medium curry powder if you can't get this)
  • 1-2 red chili's, finely chopped
  • 500g of butternut squash, cubed
  • 2 teaspoons of brown sugar (2 syns)
  • 1 cup of Silk Coconut milk* (4 syns)
  • 1 cup of vegetable stock
  • oil spray
  • Salt and Black pepper
  • fresh chopped coriander
  1. Spray a deep frying pan over a medium heat with oil spray spray. Add the onion and fry for a few mins to soften.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger, chili's and butternut squash and cook for a further few mins.
  3. Add the Malaysian Curry Powder and sugar and stir to evenly coat.
  4. Pour in the coconut milk and stock and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20mins, until squash is cooked and sauce has reduced down slightly and thickened. Season with salt and black pepper as needed and top with some fresh chopped coriander.
  5. Serve with your choice of sides
  6. For a variation, you could also add some fish or chicken to this dish.

    What is the obsession with putting sugar in these recipes? Why use curry powder instead of just using individual ground herbs? That’s just lazy

    Slimming Sanctuary in Malaysia service is not as promising as
    compare with the first sign up. They just want your money and when they have
    more and more clients, they will not not attend to you and just feel that you
    appointment is ignoring. The place / room for treatment is not as expecting as
    when you saw in their flyers and advertisement. There is also kind of smell
    from the room that cannot make you relax. Kind of smelly thingy from the unwashed cloth. Gosh!!! So why
    waste your money on this kind of center ? Cheater and liars when come to consultation.
