3 Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.

4 Add the Tandoori paste and cook for 1 minute.

5 Add the coconut milk, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for
5 minutes.

6 Uncover and transfer to an ovenproof dish, then arrange the sliced halloumi on top and cook under a hot pre-heated grill for 5 minutes or until the halloumi is golden brown.

7 To serve, scatter with fresh coriander leaves and enjoy!


We have used butternut squash in this recipe but you can use any squash or even sweet potato. Swap the curry paste flavour for a change, why not try Tikka and scatter with toasted flaked almonds?
