Chow Chow Fry/Chayote Fry

Pin It Now!
My liking for eating fresh veggies I should say started with this stir fry.Totally love eating this stir fry with creamy yogurt rice.Chayote has a lot of Vitamin C so it adds a natural tartness to the stir fry.As it does not have a strong flavor can become a favorite and a long lasting love for eating veggies in kids.


Ingredients
2 Chow Chow peeled and chopped -remove the seed
1/2 tsp mustard and cumin seeds
2 chillies minced - optional
Shredded coconut as per taste
Few curry leaves
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil

Method
Add enough salt to chow chow as we will not be adding later blend well then cover cook it a vessel adding just enough water.Heat oil in a pan add mustard and cumin seeds when they splutter add curry leaves minced chillies and add the cooked chow chow.Add coconut and stir to blend well.Enjoy with plain creamy yogurt rice.

Note:Do not over cook or under cook the chow chow.Cooking chow chow separately and then doing the tempering later helps to maintain the beautiful color.If there is any stock left just add some salt and pepper and enjoy as a soup.Forgot to take a picture of the soup - tastes great.

My favorite way to eat this is just mix the sabji with plain rice and a dollop of ghee - nothing like that! Looks perfect.
