Butternut Squash and Couscous Patties-Indian Inspired #Squashin’ Winter #SundaySupper

Yeah you heard it right.We’re squashin’ Winter by bringing some of our favorite Squash recipes for you today.

Do you like Squash?Do you often use it in your recipes?I would really love to use it more in my cooking but I always end up roasting it or making a soup.When I heard the theme for our Sunday Supper, I decided to make something that’s not the first thing that comes to your mind when you’re thinking Butternut Squash, like these Patties that have been given an Indian Inspired makeover that tickles your tastebuds with layers of delicious flavors in every bite.

Butternut Squash and Couscous Patties 1

I  had some leftover cooked Couscous from my Couscous Tabbouleh that I made over the weekend and I decided to use some of the couscous in my patties to give it some body and also make it easier to handle.I was a bit apprehensive at first, but I went ahead and used it only to realize that it wasn’t a bad idea after all.

The inspiration for these patties is the Indian Aloo Tikki that’s a favorite street food in Northern India.I’ve made another version of the Aloo Tikki using Quinoa over here.The char marks you see is what gives these patties a unique smoky flavor combined with the sweetness of the Squash.The ginger and the spices add tons of flavor and the icing on the cake is definitely the chat masala that’s an essential component in any Tikki.You can easily find them in any Indian store.

The patties use a little bit of couscous, so you can taste the butternut squash in all its glory.The one thing you really HAVE to do is to let the liquid drain from the squash.I typically leave it in a colander for sometime.Once you’re past that step you can add the rest of the ingredients.Its a great way of enjoying Butternut Squash and you can serve it as an appetizer or as a side dish along with your favorite condiment or my mint chutney this Thanksgiving.Enjoy!

  7. Those look super appetizing Soni and I like the Indian twist of course. I am not sure if I had butternut squash before. At least I don’t remember seeing it in Europe and I doubt that it exists in India.
