Masala Winter Squash


1 large onion, peeled
5 cloves garlic, peeled
1 dried chili or 1 teaspoon red chili flakes or to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon curry powder or to taste
1 cup chopped tomatoes (canned are fine) or 1/2 cup water
1.5 pounds peeled winter squash like butternut or pumpkin cut into 1-inch cubes
lime wedges


Combine the onion, garlic and chili in a food processor or blender and grind until pasty. In a large skillet that can be covered, place oil and heat under medium heat. Add onion mixture, salt, pepper and curry powder. Cook, stirring occasionally unil the onion mixture begins to brown, about 5-10 minutes.

Add tomatoes or 1/2 cup water along with the squash. Cover and adjust heat so mixture simmers steadily. Cook, stirring occasionally and adding more water if necessary until squash is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve with lime.

This sounds super delicious! Squash and curry go so well the idea of tomatoes with the squash too! Thanks for the recipe!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
