Summer Squash Yellow Curry

Another delicious curry. I’m feeling like you really can’t go wrong with curry. Different spice pastes, different veg, different heat levels, herbs, etc. It’s all so tasty. I decided to go with a yellow curry this time. Sticking with the “yellow” theme I used some gorgeous squash we picked up at the market. I’m really picky about squash. I like it al dente and not mushy in a dish. The squash could easily be thrown in the pot with everything else or even during the last few minutes of cooking. Because I’m a picky pants about it, I chose to quickly saute the squash separately and throw it on top of the rice before serving the remainder of the hot curry. We’re loving the addition of the hot pepper paste for added heat for the milder curries like masman and yellow. These could all be dialed down to very mild by leaving out the extra pepper paste.
