  1. Half and peel the onion, and bake with the butternut squash (whole) at 400℉ for 45 minutes. Once butternut squash is soft and can be poked through easily with a knife, take it out of the oven and carefully peel and chop it up into 1/2 in cubes. Cut up the onion too.

  2. Heat the oil on medium heat and once hot, add the garlic. Stir until fragrant and brown (~4min)

  3. Add in the onion and butternut squash chunks. Mash it up to the best of your ability and make sure to distribute with garlic.

  4. Add in the turmeric, chilli powder, and coriander powder. Mix evenly with the butternut squash, garlic and onion.

  5. Add in the coconut milk. Mix well and let it simmer on low heat for a couple of minutes.

  6. Squeeze in the lime.

  7. Use a hand grinder to blend to desired consistency.

  8. DEVOUR IT.
