Roasted, Curried Spaghetti Squash or Upma
Talk about spaghetti squash in the summer!
I have been making this incredibly easy and simple snack/ meal in my home for a year now, and have had multiple friends ask for the recipe. I finally got down to posting the recipe today!
Make this for your kids while we get this wonderful vegetable and see how they enjoy the squash noodles!
It is so simple, and you need exactly 2 ingredients- a squash and a lemon, technically, not including the curry and seasoning 🙂 And it can make a whole meal for one person or a snack for four people. The best part is, it has VERY LITTLE CARBS!!!
Step-wise pics for reference:
After baking at 375 F for 40-50 min:
Scoop with fork to get noodle like consistency
After tossing in spices, that literally takes only 5 minutes
Here’s the recipe
Ingredients: 1 medium spaghetti squash coconut oil spray For seasoning: 1 tsp. mustard seeds 2 green chilies cut lengthwise 1 tsp. sesame oil 1 tsp. chana dal 2 tbsp. cashew halves 1 tsp. fresh curry leaves Salt to taste Juice of 1 lemon Cilantro for garnish Method:

Will try this for sure. Thanks Apsara 😀
Thank you Seema. Let me know how it turns out!
Will definitely try this and will let you know… think you for sharing…
You’re welcome, Suchi! Hope you all like the taste too
WOW! This came out so delicious! I do the same thing, taking inspiration from a recipe and then changing it up. I had some left over roasted sweet potatoes so I just carmelized onions, browned the turkey in a pan, added some other vegetables, red thai chili paste, and a bit of lemongrass (along with everything you put in the recipe) and it came out amazingly delicious! My fiance was shocked because I put it together rather quickly and it was so yummy 🙂
Thank you for your feedback. Those are great adaptations to the recipe
This looks tasty but might I suggest that you swap cage-free organic for pastured organic. From what I know, it seems like a kinder option!
I make something very similar and freeze it. The trick is to reheat it in the oven and not the microwave (which makes it weird and soggy).
Wow, great idea! Definitely will give try this!
