Squash Masala

Squash Masala is a simple and spicy side dish that's the perfect accompaniment to any Indian inspired meal. This one skillet dish is based on potato masala recipe from Since I'm not a fan of potatoes, I decided to try the recipe with acorn squash instead and it turned out great. It might not be very authentic but it's certainly delicious!
