Garlic Sprouts, Butternut Squash and Spinach Curry

Garlic Sprouts, Butternut Squash and Spinach Curry

Sometime spur of the moments like this makes you creative, thinking of preparing something out of what you only have. Sometimes it turns out bad, so bad it can’t be shared here but most of the time it turns out really good like this dish.

The ingredients you see here are the few last items I saw our fridge, the time I made this is we are preparing for a long holiday and were clearing what’s perishable. There are few odds bits and pieces but I guess the ones here on our recipe are the best ones to mix together and make an amazing dish.

Squash, spinach, garlic spouts and some pork in coconut cream sauce is the result, a creamy savoury curry you can pair with freshly steamed rice.
