Marrow (Zucchini) Tikka Masala Curry

Marrow (Zucchini) Tikka Masala Curry

As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently visited a pick-your-own farm in the search of  marrows and squashes. After making my veggie stuffed marrow, I still had another huge marrow left, which I turned into this delicious marrow tikka masala curry.

Marrow Tikka Masala Curry
Serves 8.

Marinating time: 1 hour
Cook time: 1 hour 30

You will need:

Start by adding the diced marrow, the curry paste and a drizzle of garlic oil to a large mixing bowl. Make sure the marrow is completely coated in the spices and then leave to marinate for at least an hour.

After this time has passed, heat a large lidded frying pan on a medium heat, add 1 tbsp of garlic oil and soften the onions for about 10 minutes. Then add the green pepper and the marinated marrow and cook for a further 5-10 minutes.

Then add the passata. Simmer gently for at least an hour or until the marrow is completely cooked through.

I then usually use a hand-blender to blitz the cooked marrow a little, but still leaving much of the marrow still intact, just to thicken the sauce.

You can then eat this immediately, but I would advise allowing it to cool and then refrigerating for 1 or 2 days before re-heating and serving. The flavour is much better after a couple of days.

Serve with flatbreads and fresh coriander.
