    Hi Everyone

    There is this Banana Squash that we get here in the U.S..

    Can we do something with it,Indian style?It looks like our Indian yellow pumpkin.

    Cheers

    Soup

    Hi Sunitha,

    The banana squash is little sweet in flavor. I have tried making a soup - a mexican recipe that I got from a friend here. It tastes good and healthy!

    You want I can share the recipe here. I'm not sure how it would taste for any Indian way of cooking - may be you can try the recipe of yellow pumpkin poriyal with it.

    Squash recipe

    Hi Sunitha,

    I am back on the site after a long time...so got to read your message just now.

    I have actually used butternut squash in place of parangikai(yellow pumpkin we get in India) to make "mathan"(thogayal).

    May be you can try it with banana squash too, if you would like mathan. I can share mathan recipe if you want.

    Refer this site about winter squash...it is said banana squash can be subsituted by butternut squash, pumpkin,etc.
    So I assume it applies vice-versa too.
