While growing up in our town, this subzi used to be served at a yearly Karthik Ekadashi(11th day of the Karthik month in Hindu calendar) where almost everyone at our town used to partake, atleast the kids. We had to take our plates and after the pooja was over, they served the prasad lunch. The food was simple yet such amazing and tasty. And among the prasad, the bhoplyachi bhaji(kaddu sabzi) used to be my favorite with the sweet spicy taste. Ever since then this has been my favorite preparation with the squash.
3 cups butternut squash, deskinned, cubed
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 pinch asafetida
1 1/2 tsp goda masala
3/4 tsp chili powder
2 cubes jaggery/3 –4 tbsp brown sugar

3. Add little water, close the lid and let it cook.
4. Once cooked, let the water evaporate. Serve with roti/bhakri/bread or as a side !
