Chow Chow / Chayote Kootu




It is a simple recipe and its one of my favorite kootu. I always love to have kootu because its easy to cook and it doesn't required much ingredients. One more reason I always used to cook kootu in pressure cooker. So simple no ?

Onion                              1 No

Tomato                           1 No

Channa Dal / Tuvar dal  1/4 cup

Green chilli                   2 -3 nos

Sambar powder             1 1/2 tbsp

Salt to taste

To Temper
-------------

Fennel seeds              1 tsp

Peel the skin from chow chow , remove the seeds and chop in to cube size.

Soak the dal in water for 15 minutes.

In a pressure cooker take all the ingredient except Item under To temper and cook it for 4 -5 hisses.

Once pressure went , heat oil in a pan add fennel seeds and curry leaves.

Once splutter add it to kootu and let it cook for 2 -3 minutes.
