Chow Chow Kootu – Chayote Kootu

February 6, 2017 Chow ChowKootu / Poriyal Varieties  5 comments

Kootu is a South Indian side dish for rice made with veggies, lentils and coconut. Chow Chow Kootu is a simple kootu variety that goes well with rice. Our family favourite combo is with rice & Poondu Kulambu, though we like to have with sambar as well. It tastes good with chapathi or mixed with plain rice too. I normally prefer adding a handful of moong dal or chana dal while making the kootu. Do check my Podalangai Poricha Kootu which is quite a spicy version of kootu.

Chayote, known as chow chow in tamil is usually made as a kootu in any South Indian household. I make this Chow Chow Fry quite often than kootu. This fry goes well with roti and rice. So whenever I make this, Chotu has it with rice and we have it as a roti wrap for lunch. Two in one purpose solved right?!? This veggie takes very less time to cook and is a super easy recipe.

Do try my Chow Chow Chutney too!!
