  1. Add the onion, spices and olive oil to a casserole dish with 6 tbsp. water. Cook the onion gently on a low heat for 4-5 minutes until a spicy paste forms and coats the onions.

  2. Add the tinned tomatoes, coconut milk, butternut squash and stock. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes until the squash is soft and the sauce reduced.
