Butternut Masala for Dosa

Since Gudiya loves butternut squash, I love to experiment with this vegetable. The other day, I substituted it for potatoes. This masala has a sweet flavor. I stuffed it inside the dosa.

Butternut Masala
1 lb cubes of buttnerut squash
salt to taste

1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 sprigs of curry leaves, torn
1 tsp urad daal
1/2 tsp chana daal
2-3 byadgi dry chilies, halved
1/2 cup chopped onion

0. Peel and cut the butternut squash into pieces
1. Heat oil in a saucepan.
2. Add all the seeds,spices, chilies and leaves. As they splutter, add onion. Saute till onion is soft.
3. Add cut squash, salt
4. Cover with a lid. Add water on the lid and let it cook till the squash is cooked. Sprinkle some water if needed for cooking.

Note -
1. I love to squeeze half of lemon after the bhaaji is cooked. You can do it if you like.
