Shari's Indian-Inspired Butternut Squash Curry


So my pastor's wife randomly awesomely gave me a butternut squash the other day. This evening I decided to use it for supper. My husband kindly chopped it up for me. I made a curry for it from Indian ingredients. I then compared my results to some similar recipes online: Butternut Squash & Coconut CurrySambhar, and Indian Summer Stew: Butternut Squash, Coconut, and Lentil Stew. Not bad! Our supper was perfect! Not too much or too little spicy. The dish tasted buttery. I would make it again.
