You can keep a few slices of acorn squash on the side and quickly pan fry them with a little olive oil on each side for about 3 minutes, until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper and use them as topping for the curry before serving. This will add more texture and a smoky element to the Thai green curry recipe.
