Step 1
Toss the squash with the coconut oil and salt and spread onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes until the squash is golden brown and cooked through.
Step 2
Heat the remaining coconut oil and pop the mustard seeds and asafetida. Almost immediately, add the kari leaves and fry them for 10 seconds. Add the chopped red onion and sauté at medium heat until the onions are soft.
Step 3
Add the ginger, coriander, chili, turmeric, salt, and coconut milk and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Cover and simmer until the flavors have melded together, around 10 minutes.
Step 4
Add the roasted squash and fennel seeds and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Add the asparagus and cashews and turn the heat off. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
3 to 4 cups assorted squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
