Mayan Heirloom Squash Stirfry Curry (Subzi)

MHSStirfry

When I saw these, I was so excited for two reasons, they were utterly cute and also they opened up a whole new opportunity to try something new

They look like tubby and dwarf version of Zucchinis and taste like them too. Better yet the package that they were in came with cooking instructions which were pretty much how we make a mixed veggie subzi – Apparently they are used in Guatemalan cuisine.
so here goes
MHSquash
Ingredients
Packet of 6 Mayan Heirloom Squash – cut into thin rounds
1 onion
2 tomatoes cut round and fried separately
1 Habanero pepper
½ turmeric powder
½ cumin seeds
1 tsp Suvaiyana Chennai curry powder or other
2 tsp olive oil
Salt

MHSquash 2
MSSFRY

Preparation
Like any other dry subzi, in a skillet heat the oil, splutter the cumin.
Add the green chilies and the curry powder and the turmeric
Add the onion and fry until brown
Remove them and then add the tomatoes and fry them
Microwave the squash for 3 minutes so they tenderize slightly
Now add the onions to the tomatoes, and the squash too
Let them all cook in the and bind in taste and flavor
Serve hot with Chappatis or as a side with rice or pasta

    This recipe looks fantastic, I love curry!
