This is one of those recipes that you wonder where it has been hiding. It is so delicious. The mild curry with applesauce gives it a very smooth flavour that will tickle your taste buds. This will be repeated over and over again. For anyone that have not tried curry try this recipe. I am sure you will fall in love with curry. It is a pleasure to write a review for this wonderful recipe. 17 July 16 Made again & enjoyed Just as much27 August Yep made again - This time with a Butternut squash - There is not much room for stuffing so I put the rest of it in a separate bowl, covered it and heated it along side the squash.
