Easy Butternut Squash Indian Vegetarian Stir-fry
------------------------------------------------
3 cups of butternut squash, cut in medium-thick equal slices
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 dried red chillies (optional)
1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
oil
salt to taste

1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in non-stick pan over low heat. Break the 2 dried red 
   chillies and add to pan. Add cumin seeds.
2. When the cumin seeds start to crackle, add the butternut slices and turn
   heat to medium. Mix to coat the butternut well with the oil. Add 1/4 tsp
   salt and mix.
3. Fry for about 2-3 minutes until the butternut slices start to slightly 
   "burn". Add 1/4 cup of water and mix.
4. Cook until butternut is well cooked. Use your spatula to break one piece
   of butternut into two. If it breaks, then your butternut is ready.

Notes:
1. On how to peel the butternut squash, check out this video on how to peel.
2. Cut your butternut pumpkin into medium-thick equal slices. They 
   shouldn't be too thin or they will mash up during cooking. Remember 
   butternut is a winter squash, so it gets "squashy".
