Last week i was introduced to a new veggie by a gud frnd of mine,it  is called Chow Chow/Chayote/Pear Squash/Vegetable Pear - is an edible plant belonging to Gourd family.

Tried making a stir fry using this for lunch to go along with Rice n Sambar ..it tasted Yumm..

Chow chow - 2 (peeled n diced)
Green Chilli - 2 (chopped roughly)
Ginger - a small pc (chopped)
Curry Leaves - a sprig
Mustard seeds - 1/4tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Tumeric powder- 1/2tsp
Coconut - 1 tbsp (freshly grated or can use dessicated coconut)


Steam cook the chow chow for 5-7 min.
Heat oil in a pan,crackle mustard seeds,curry leaves .
Add urad dal n hing...when urad dal turns golden add the steamed chow chow,ginger n green chillies.
Saute for a min and add tumeric n salt.Mix well n cook for 1- 2 min.
