  1. Heat the oven to 180°C,160°C Fan, Gas Mark 4.
  2. With a sharp knife, slice the tops of the squash off, scoop out the seeds and replace the lid. Season the flesh, transfer to a lined baking tray and roast for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, sauté the onion and garlic in a little oil and stir in the garam masala. Add the lamb and pepper. Season a little and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Add the cooked potato and simmer for a few minutes. Keep warm.
  5. When the squash is cooked, scoop out a little of the flesh and mix with the lamb filling.
  6. Stir in the spring onions and  herbs.  Season, if required. Fill each squash with the mixture and scatter any remaining mix around on the tray. Cook for a further 5 minutes and serve with steamed broccoli.
