Hi friends, Chayote squash or chow-chow chutney is new to our menu… Its healthy and easy to make and simple side dish for idli/dosa. We usually used the chow-chow for making sambhar or kootu, but chutney is very rare, even I didn't think to make chutney with the veggie.

No need to add coconut to the chutney. It blends with tomato and chana dal and urad dal, give unique taste and we loved it with ragi dosa too…
