Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Trim the butternut squash, halve lengthways, then scoop out the seeds (peel first if you prefer). Cut into 2cm chunks.
Pop the diced butternut onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle over half the curry powder and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) and cardamom pods into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.
Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
While everything cooks, halve any thick broccoli stems lengthways. Cut the Tenderstem®
into thirds. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.
Once hot, add the korma style paste, garlic and remaining curry powder, stir-fry for 1 min, then stir in the veg stock paste, sugar and water for the curry (see pantry for both amounts).
Stir in the broccoli and bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower the heat, cover with a lid and simmer until the broccoli is just tender, 4-5 mins.
Once tender, stir in the creme fraiche and mango chutney. Bring back to the boil, then remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Once the butternut squash is roasted, stir it through the curry. Return the pan to the heat to warm through. Add a splash of water if it's a little too thick.
Fluff up the rice with a fork and remove the cardamom pods.
Share the cardamom rice between your plates, then top with your korma style curry.
