Cook the butternut squash in a pan of boiling water for 15 minutes, or until it is tender. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan and add the onions and cook for a few minutes until soft. Add the curry paste, tomatoes, ginger and coconut milk, and simmer for 10 minutes until you have a rich thick sauce.
Warm the naan breads in a low oven or under a low grill. Drain the squash and add this to the sauce with the lentils and spinach. Simmer for a further 3 minutes so that the spinach wilts, then stir in the coconut yogurt.
Serve the vegetable dhansak with the warm naan and a dollop of the yogurt.
