    You will need
    frylight
    onion
    butternut squash diced
    2 tbsp of curry paste
    can of chopped tomatoes vegetable stock
    100g red lentils

    fry and soften onions, add squash and cook for a few minutes. Stir in curry paste and toms. Add around 5-600ml of stock and lentils and bung in oven for around 4 mins or slow cooker for as long as you want.

    It works out at 4 syns for lot, and it feeds around 4. I fed 2, and we got loads left over for the freezer!! 'm sure you could make it with curry powder and spices with no syns if you wanted. But I daren't play with it cos I loved it so much, and hardly any syns anyway

    I add more chilli powder cos I love it hot. I also love it with wholegrain rice! I couldn't believe how lovely it was, and I usually love my meat!!

    Sounds yum will def try this as bought a butternut squash today but had no idea what to do with it. I have curry powder but what other spices would you use if not using curry paste?

    Also I pressume you meant stick in the oven for 40 mins and not 4 lol:D:D

    Thanks xx

    Sorry, 40ish mins in oven. If not using paste, use curry powder and maybe cumin, tumeric garam masala, Whatever you fancy really.

    Just made this and was absolutely scrummy (plenty left for lunches and for the freezer); but thought I would double check the syns on the curry paste and got a bit of a surprise.

    The "average food" section of the website sayd 2 syns per tbsp for the curry paste, but Pataks curry paste (which is what I used) is actually 4 syns per tbsp!! quite a difference, so just watch out for that one peeps.

    However it still only works out at 3 syns per portion if you use 3 tbsp of curry paste, or 2 syns per portion if using 2 tbsps which I think is fab. Definately did not expect to like this, but it's going in my top 10.

    Hugs

    It will depend which curry paste you use - the tikka one is the lowest in syns at only 1 syn for a level tbsp.

    Made this yesterday..............


    Pete’s Butternut Squash Chicken Curry

    Serves 4
    Ingredients

    425g/½ butternut squash
    1 onion, chopped
    1tsp “easy lazy” garlic
    1tsp “easy Lazy” ginger
    1tsp cumin
    1tsp turmeric
    1tsp coriander
    1tsp garam masala
    1tsp madras curry powder
    600g chicken, pre-cooked, chopped into cubes
    750mL chicken stock
    400g Chopped Tomatoes

    Method

    (This can be made in advance.)
    Chop up the butternut squash into small cubes; leave the skin on, extra fibre!

    Spray a large saucepan with Fry Light and add chopped onion, ginger & garlic, cook for 7 mins, with a lid on the pan.

    Add butternut squash, madras curry powder and chicken stock, cook for 40 mins, remove from the heat and liquidize with a hand blender.

    Continue.

    Place back on heat and add cumin, turmeric and coriander, cook for 1 min, add tomato and chicken cook until chicken has been cooked through. Add garam masala 5 min before serving.
    Serve on a bed of rice with a side salad.
