Add the curry paste and chilli to the pan and fry for 2 mins. Tip in the squash and pepper, then stir through the coconut milk along with 200 ml water.
Add the lime leaves, cover and cook for 15-20 mins or until the squash is tender.
Stir the mange tout and baby corn through the curry, then re-cover, cooking over a medium-low heat for a further 5 mins or until the veg is just cooked.
