Heat the oven to 180c.

Slice the top of the squash off, scoop out the seeds and replace the lid. Season inside and roast on an oven tray for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, sauté the onion and garlic in a little oil and stir in the garam masala. Add the lamb chop and slice and add the red pepper. Season a little and cook for a few minutes.

Pour in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Add the cooked potato and simmer for a few minutes. Keep warm.

When the squash is cooked, scoop out a little of the flesh and mix it into the lamb filling.

Stir in the herbs and adjust the seasoning. Fill each squash with the mixture and scatter any remaining mix around on the tray. Cook for five more minutes and serve with some steamed broccoli.
