Meet Nalini Singh!

Nalini Singh is the internationally bestselling author of the Guild Hunter series and the Psy/Changling series. She was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan, and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand now - although she's always plotting new trips.

This one is a particular favourite, as it’s got so much flavour. The squash is tossed with curry powder and roasted until tender with some red peppers, it’s then tossed into a pan with more spices – sautéed cumin and mustard seeds, and some garlic and onion, which then simmer with galangal, tomato purée, ground ginger, lime juice and coconut milk.
