Potato and Squash curry with Lentil Fritters

Every day while entering into the kitchen my daily problem is to think what to cook. It’s really a horrible job, before marriage I thought something I will cook for our daily lunch or dinner. But to think that something is a big task for me. I think all of you are facing the same problem every day.

After so much of plan I called my Maa and she told me to cook one nice Squash Curry with Daler Bora or Lentil Fritters. It’s a very simple recipe but with plain rice this one is just too good. Hope most of you know this recipe but this one is for those who don’t know.

Squash is really very good for health and with the Dal or Lentil it becomes healthier. This one is perfect for a simple lunch.

Preparation time: 15 mints.
Cooking time:  30 mints.

Ingredients:For Bora or Fritters:
1.Urad Dal : 100 gm (soaked into water for overnight).
2.One Medium size chopped onion.
3.Two chopped green chilies.
4.Some salt.
5.Sunflower oil for frying.

Now make some small round shape flat balls with the mixture and deep fry them in oil. After frying soak the extra oil in a paper towel, and keep it aside.

Now add some oil in a vessel and add the cumin seeds, bay leave and dry red chili. Now add the squash pieces and potato pieces into the vessel and fry for some time.

Make a paste with ginger, green chilies and tomato; add all the spices powder into the paste. Now add the masala mixture into the vessel with some salt and sugar.
