This vegetable curry dish is often served over rice or with coo-coo, the Caribbean rendition of soft polenta. Calabaza, also called West Indian pumpkin, has a brilliant orange, firm, sweet flesh, much like acorn or butternut squash.
2 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced (about 3 cups)
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add yellow onion and next 6 ingredients (through garlic) to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add 1 cup broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Add remaining 1 cup broth and carrot; sauté 5 minutes.
Pierce habanero with a fork; add to pan. Stir in squash, tomato, and zucchini; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Discard habanero; simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Untangling My Chopsticks: A Culinary Sojourn in Kyoto
A good recipe, but not great. Used hot curry powder to give it a kick, and added 1/8 tsp. ground fennel seed. Served over brown rice and cooked an additional 15 minutes at the end. It was not bland, but just had no distinctive or memorable flavor.
I made this using sweet potatoes rather than the squash, and served over rice. It was not as flavorful as I had expected. It wasn't spicy at all - so we added some hot sauce. It was a decent and enjoyable meal, but not a keeper in my book.
