Indian Style Spaghetti Squash Curry Recipe
Indianizing recipes is, well, a force of habit! Especially when you want to try something new - the first thing that comes to my mind is how I can make it with 'homey' flavors. I am sure every person tries that! Get comfortable with the new ingredient by first using it with recipes they grew up with! When I first tried out making Spaghetti squash, that is exactly what I did. And when something tastes good, in this case delicious and hearty, you start liking it pronto and begin to use in different recipes.

The only time consuming aspect of this dish is preparing the squash by itself. Of course there is no major prep work involved but it takes 10-15 min of cooking time. But once done, the making of the curry by itself is a breeze. Add some tempering and seasoning and you are good to go! I already explained How to cook Spaghetti Squash. Lets go into this simple recipe shall we?
