Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C

First, bake the stuffing balls and roast the veg

  • Cook the stuffing balls
  • Roast the butternut squash and parsnips on a tray with some vegetable oil and the fennel and cumin seeds for 25 mins at 180℃

Then, start on the curry sauce

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and add the cinnamon, star anise, cloves, cumin seeds and cardamom seeds and cook for a few minutes until the flavours are released
  • Then add the onions and salt and stir until translucent
  • Add the garlic, ginger, green chilli and ground coriander and cook down for a few more minutes
  • Then add the brown sugar and tomato puree and stir
  • Next, add the water and stir until it’s mostly cooked off, then stir in the tinned tomatoes and coconut cream

Add the veggies

  • Once the sauce is a good consistency, add the steamed Brussel sprouts
  • Remove the cinnamon sticks and star anise, then add the roast vegetables from earlier
  • Serve on rice with the stuffing balls and garnish with spiced damson chutney (if you can get it!), dried cranberries and coriander
