Chow-Chow Chutney/Chayote Chutney

This is a quick and delicious chutney. I had a sudden thought of trying this one day and tried it. No one will know this chutney is prepared with chow-chow/chayote squash unless you tell them! :) 
Chow-chow/Chayote/Merakkay -1/2cup{peeled and chopped into small pieces}
Channa dal-1tablespoons
Red chilly-4 (adjust to your taste)
Tamarind- a tiny piece
Grated coconut-11/2tablespoons
To temper
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Urad dal-1/2teaspoon
Curry leaves- few

Heat oil in a pan, add the channa dal and fry till it turn golden in color. 
Now add the red chillies, fry them for few seconds, add the chow-chow and fry on medium heat.
Once the veggie is cooked, add the tamarind and coconut and put off the flame.
Grind it as a fine paste with little water and enough salt, once it cools down completely. 
Make the tempering in a small tempering pan, pour it over the chutney and enjoy it with idli or dosai.


  1. This is one vegetable that I haven't tried chutney yet. Looks Delicious.. will try soon...
