This is a unique dip dish made of squash.
  Acorn squash 1 Medium, cut into small pieces
  Plain yogurt 2 Cup (32 tbs) (If Possible Little More Sour And Thick)
  Peanut powder 3 Tablespoon (Coarse)
  Green chilies 2
  Cumin seeds 2 Teaspoon
  Finely chopped coriander 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Oil 3 Tablespoon (For Tempering)
  Salt To Taste

Cook all the pieces of squash in boiling water (or in a pressure cooker) till they are perfectly soft.
(Sometimes it is very hard to take the skin off for squash. In that case, you can leave the skin while cooking and once cooked skin can be taken off). Mash all the cooked squash in a bowl thoroughly.
Then add yogurt, peanut powder, sugar, salt and coriander in the bowl.
Heat the oil and then add cumin (till golden brown), green chilies (cut). Mix the oil with squash mixture and blend together to get a yummy squash dip.
This dish can be prepared by using pumpkin too.
