To be honest, I could eat rice plain in a leather boot and be happy. But I could eat this curry on rice in a leather boot and be even happier.

The bright color of this curry comes from both the beauuuutiful butternut squash and the yellow curry powder, and peaks of red bell pepper poking through make it look (and taste!) fresh and light. But the garbanzo beans make it filling. It’s a magical dish.

Now, I did three Thai chillies because I have a stomach of steel (these little fuckers are tiny and HOT!) but feel free to use a jalapeño, seedless jalapeño, serrano – whatever your belly can take.
