squish squash

Firstly,My apologies if this is a little messy & the pictures are worse than usual! Ive been busy at work :( and now im eating saag and ARRRGH i cant let anything come between me and saag!!

Oh my Gourd enough of that already! * teehee *
Don't you just love them,Pumpkins,Squashes! Call them what you wish!
Whether they be sweet or savoury, theyre well worth eating,and when better to eat them,than this time of year.
We needed something quick and simple to eat & Whats better than a spicy,hearty,Butternut squash and potato curry!


You will need:
230g Butternut squash (peeled & diced into bite size pieces)
170g Potato ( Peeled & diced into bite size pieces)
80g Chopped onion
200g chopped tomatoes ( i used tinned)
25g chopped Garlic
20g Chopped ginger ( you can mince or grate the ginger and garlic if you wish)
2 tablespoons of veg oil
2 curry leaves ( i crushed :$ )
2 teaspoon cracked black peppercorns
2 teaspoon whole cumin
1 small pinch of Hing (Asafoetida)
2 teaspoon Tumeric
3 Chillies ( i used birdseye and they were pretty hot you can tweak this to suit your taste)
1 teaspoon of paprika
Salt to your taste
1/4 pint of water





Method:

In a pan temper your Cumin,Black Peppercorns & Curry leaves.
(Until the cumin goes a little darker (NOT BLACK)



Add your Onions and Ginger and cook until the onions are translucent and starting to go brown.
Then add the ginger and chopped chillies.

Cook until goldenbrown Then add your;
Hing,tumeric,paprika.

Cook Mix in all the spices,Then add your potatoes and cook
out for a further 5 minutes.

 Add your squash,And cook until you can feel the curry just starting to stick to the pan,
Add your water and placer a lid on top,and cook on a low heat until the potatoes & squash are soft.
When soft take off the heat,sprinkle with plenty of freshly chopped cilantro!
Et Voile;
