Butternut squash curry

RECIPE OVERVIEW

This vegetarian curry is a popular a choice among vegetarians and carnivores alike in Saba! We naturally chose yellow curry because it’s our only paste suitable for vegetarians as it doesn’t contain any dried shrimp. Once we added the sweet, roasted butternut squash even the meat eaters were converted. The weight of the Tiger beer complements the sweetness and the creaminess of this dish making it the perfect partner.
