This butternut squash curry is so good and easy to make too!
My wife and I learned this butternut squash curry recipe while travelling around Sri Lanka.
We visited a little restaurant called Inspire. It only had a few tables but the food they put on those tables was out of this world amazing.
The owner and chef offered to show us this butternut squash curry recipe, which was actually prepared using green pumpkin at the restaurant and I’m so happy they did.
Butternut squash or pumpkin?
As I mentioned above, this butternut squash curry was prepared with green pumpkin at the restaurant.
It was fantastic but butternut squash works equally as well and is also easier to source. That said, if you happen to find some green pumpkin and a farm shop, pick it up. I recommend trying both options.
That’s right! Although most curries are fried at some stage, this butternut squash curry was simply simmered in a coconut milk liquid.
The fact that the ingredients weren’t fried made no difference to the end result. If you would rather tried a fried butternut squash curry, try this but I think you will love this version.
There are only a few ingredients in this Sri Lankan style butternut squash curry and they all work so well with each other.

If you scroll down to the recipe, there is a video of my wife learning to make this curry in Sri Lanka.
She learned several recipes that day. The butternut squash curry starts at 4 minutes 50 seconds in the video.
