    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    A vegetable curry which is far too spicy for me but which I believe many would enjoy. It's certainly full of nutrition. I found this recipe in a March 2005 issue of the magazine 'Fresh'. I've posted it here exactly as I found it. Although I have cooked such dishes, as a non-eater, I have no feel for them so am ill-equipped to modify them in any way, but I do hope that anyone trying this recipe will make it their own by adjusting it to meet their own taste preferences. And for a spot of culinary trivia: among the spices in this recipe is turmeric which - according to the notes accompanying the recipe - "has been called 'poor man's saffron' as it imparts a yellow colour at a fraction of the cost"!

      I LOVED it! It is an absolute keeper. The first I made it I didn't have any spinach so I just left it out and it was still wonderful. Even my sister who normally is not so much into "foreign" food liked it. Thank you so much for posting.

      I loved this one! So rich tasting and flavourful. We had peanuts on top of ours too and next time,I'll add some coriander. Very yummy!

      Super duper! I made this exactly as posted with the exception of dolloping the yoghurt on top with the mint leaves. I topped this curry with peanuts and home-made chutney instead! We loved the combination of the spinach and squash - a great taste and texture! This was hot and spicy, but that is JUST the way we like it! Made as a Thank You for MsSally and the Fairy Dust event in Holiday Tag, merci encore Bluemoon! FT:-)
