Having Indian friends over for Thanksgiving? Going to an Indian family’s home for a holiday dinner?
An Indian Thanksgiving dinner might look a little different. Along with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce will also be some Indian food favorites.
Indians love their own food.
I don’t remember a Thanksgiving growing up that didn’t include a full spread of Indian traditional dishes also. And I loved every last bite of it all.
For my own family, instead of making two different spreads I’m blending traditional Thanksgiving dishes and giving them an Indian twist. If you’re looking to make your Indian guests feel extra special or want to warm up on a cold Winter day, try this Indian twist on the classic roasted butternut squash.
This was the perfect snack to warm up to during our first snow of the season!
Handi-foil knows me well! The sweet folks at handi-foil sent me a variety of baking pans to help me out with all my holiday cooking. It was like I just got an extra helping hand in the kitchen!
There is plenty of pre-cut butternut squash in the produce section at the grocery store, but I wanted a much smaller dice then what was available. So, I decided to do it myself. Peel it well. Butternut squash has a very thick skin.
Add olive oil, spices, salt, pepper and chickpeas. Easy toss and clean-up after! Roast in oven for 1 hour, turning once.
