How to Make It
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add the squash, curry powder, and 1 ½ teaspoons salt, stirring to coat evenly. Add the broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the squash is cooked through and most of the liquid has evaporated, 15 to 20 minutes.
Stir in the cream and cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat until the sauce has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring 2 cups of water and ½ teaspoon salt to a boil. Place the couscous in a large bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Cover and let stand 5 to 7 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
When ready to serve, fluff the couscous with a fork. Place ¾ cup on each plate. Top with the squash. Garnish with the peanuts and chutney.
