Chow Chow Thuvayal / Chayote Dip

Chow Chow Thuvayal2

Chow chow or Chayote is mostly a neutral squash. Its not hated by many and its not a favorite of all too. I am not an exception to what I said, until I tasted a thuvayal/ dip made with it. :)

Wait wait, don't conclude!! I meant I have started falling in love with it :P

Chow chow thuvayal is pretty simple to make yet damn yummy. It goes well with rice as well as Chapathi. This versatility made me get really impressed with it. Had it with rice in the afternoon and it became a dip for the night ;)

Chow Chow Thuvayal

Ingredients:

Chow chow - 1
Green chillies - 2
Onion - 1
Urad dhall - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Coconut scrappings - 2 tbl sp
Tamarind paste - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste

Chow chow thuvayal4

Method:

Chop chow chow, green chilly and onion roughly.

Take a pan and add two tsp of oil and crackle mustard, urad dhall. Add the chopped chow chow, green chillies and onion to it and fry till the raw smell goes. Allow it to cool.

Now grind it along with coconut, tamarind paste and salt.

Chow chow thogayal is ready to eat.

Serve it with hot rice or chapathi.

Enjoy eating :)
