Chayote Peel Chutney / Chow-Chow Thol Thuvayal

Chayote has a taste very similar to cucumber or zucchini. It can be eaten raw but tastes best when cooked. Chayote is from gourd family and the skin is also edible like other vegetables of gourd family. Chayote is very rich in Vitamin C. It is called Bengaloor Kathirika or Chow-Chow in Tamil.

Ingredients :

1. Chayote Peels - 1 Cup (Always peel chayote under running water. This is the best way to remove the sticky substance)
2. Urad Dhal - 1.5 tsp
3. Oats - 1 tsp (Dry roasted till golden brown)
4. Red Chilly - 2 or adjust to your taste
5. Oil - 4 tsp
6. Tamarind Pulp - 1/2 tsp
7. Salt - Needed Qty






Procedure :

1. In a pan, add 1 tsp of oil. Then add Urad dhal and Red chillies.

2. Fry till Urad Dhal turns golden brown. Keep aside.

3. Now, in the same pan add remaining oil and then add washed Chayote peels.

4. Fry in medium flame till the peels turn golden brown.

5. Keep all the ingredients in a mixer jar and grind to a fine paste.
