Pumpkin/Butternut Squash in yogurt sauce

Pumpkin is widely used in South India to make Kootu. I am always on the lookout for dishes that suit rotis. I was looking at this recipe in Anjana's blog and took inspiration from it to make this dish.

Do check out this Pumpkin dish as well in my blog


Pumpkin/Butternut Squash 3 cups
Clove 2
Cinnamon 1 inch piece

Star Anise 2
Fennel Seeds 1 tsp
Cumin 1 tsp
Onion 1
Garlic 3 pods
Yogurt/Curd 1 cup
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Cut the Squash into small pieces. Cook it in a pot with a little water.

2. In another pan, heat some oil and add clove, cinnamon, bay leaf, star anise, fennel seeds and cumin seeds.

3. When it sizzles, add chopped onion and garlic. Saute till  it is well done.
