Stir Fry Acorn Squash or Squash Bhaji

desi acorn squash bhaji
Acorn Squash is similar to Pumpkin/Lal Bhopla/Kadoo in taste.  Few months back I had blogged about Duddhe Upkari or Lal Bhopla Bhaji.  This recipe is similar to that, but with acorn squash and minus coconut.

Ingredients:
Acorn Squash - 2 cups
Green chillies - 8
Curry Leaves - a sprig
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Jaggery or Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt
Oil

Method:
1. Peel the squash skin and discard the seeds.  Cut it into bite sized pieces.
2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadhai/wok and add mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves.  When mustard seeds splutter, add squash pieces and lengthwise slit green chillies.  Cook it covered.
3. When squash gets cooked and soft, add salt and jaggery.  Cook for about 2 minutes.  Add chopped cilantro and Stir fry Squash is ready.
