Cauliflower, Squash, Coconut & Lentil Curry

Freestyling again now it’s with different vegetables I never had used together since I started cooking, this means it’s out of my comfort zone since I never experienced combining these vegetables together. Cauliflower, I usually use for chopseuy; Squash, I usually use for pinakbet; Lentils, I use them barely but if I do, it will be in soups. Now combining it all in coconut milk will be interesting. To be on the safe side I will be doing it curry style with simple spices such as garam masala, turmeric, onions and chillies, which will give it a lot of flavour, we are also using a bit for fatty pork which will make the flavours stand out even more and the result was AMAZEBALLS! It was a success, I might have cheated a bit there because of the pork but if you want to go totally vegetarian, you can omit them. Go on give it a shot and let me know.
