How to make Chow-Chow Poriyal/Curry(Chow-Chow is also known as Chayote Squash or Bangalore Brinjal)
The Chow-Chow is usually used in Sambar or Kootu in South India. This is not a usually prepared in south Indian homes, but is a very tasty recipe. I would say, the ingredients & the way it's used in the recipe, bring out the flavor of this squash, best. The flavor of the chillies and spices hit your taste buds first, and when you bite into it, you find it mildly sweet & juicy. The peel can be saved to make a chutney, if you like; that can be an accompaniment for Idli, Dosa & Upma varieties.
