I registered specifically to review this recipe. It was fantastic and easy to make! I only used half of the large butternut squash I had on hand do I am looking forward to making it a second time later in the week!
Yum, this is SO nice!!!! I made this exactly as recipe, except that I sauteed the butternut cubes for a few minutes with the mustard and cumin seeds, then I added the water and brought to the boil, and only then added the rice, as I've found basmati rice cooks very quickly and I was a bit worried about the butternut not cooking as quickly, and my husband does NOT like al dente vegetables :) This turned out excellently, the butternut cubes were still firm but tender, and I thought, wow, what a lovely way to serve rice and a vegetable :) We enjoyed this with Zucchini Mexicana, for a super vegetarian dinner, and this recipe was made for Family Picks, ZWT8
