Calabash Curry is one of my favourite veggie curries. It’s only loved by a few due to its texture as it becomes really soft once cooked.
Most people like the long calabash, but my mum has taught to always pick the round ones instead as they cook faster & are much tastier than the long ones. The round ones are known as calabash gourds or in South Africa, butter calabash.
If you’re a vegetarian & haven’t tried calabash as yet – give it a go! You may or may not like it but it’s definitely worth a try. Shrimp may also be added to it (Calabash And Shrimp Curry) or you may even add the calabash to a simple mutton/lamb curry! The variations with this vegetable are endless.
