Acorn Squash in Peanut Gravy

 

Tried this new recipe and loved it! Very simple, but very tasty! Had a couple of Acorn Squash sitting and this was a great meal. Pumpkin can be used instead of Acorn Squash.

What you’ll need:

  • Acorn Squash (chopped into large cubes) – 2
  • Olive Oil (or any oil of your choice) – 1 to 2 tbsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Jeera/Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Onion (finely chopped) – 1
  • Curry Leaves – 2 slivers
  • Garlic (crushed) – 5 to 6 cloves
  • Chili Powder – 2 tsps or to taste
  • Roasted Peanuts (powdered coarsely) – 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro (chopped) – a small bunch
