  • Totally delicious. I used Indian squash from the local Desi store but did not have a jalapeņo when it was time to cook. I did use a generous portion of Penzey's curry now so it had a nice spicy bite. So good it is hard not to get seconds - 4/20/17

  • YUM! I used already-roasted hubbard squash that we had frozen, & veggie broth instead of chicken. Cubed tofu small for better flavor absorption. Increased curry & added extra coriander, cumin, cardamom. Can't wait to serve to my vegan son & DIL. Great recipe! - 6/2/12
