Spicy squash


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 whole red chillies (halved)
  • 2 tablespoons garlic chopped
  • 1 large onion julienned
  • 2 cups of squash (or pumpkin) cubed
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp amchur (mango powder)
  • 1/4 tsp chat masala


  • Heat the oil
  • Add the fenugreek seeds and cumin seeds
  • When the seeds start to splutter and the red chillies & garlic
  • When the garlic is slightly cooked, add the onions
  • When onions are light brown, add the squash, and cover the pan
  • About 5 minutes later, once the squash is about 1/2 way cooked, add all the dry powders (except chat masala). Keep the pan covered & cook for another 5 minutes.
  • When fully cooked, add the chat masala and mix nicely.

I think adding some lime juice might be nice too if chat masala is not available, though I haven’t tried this!
