Chow Chow Curry Recipe is a simple and wholesome stir fry of the Chayote Squash Vegetable. In this recipe, the chow chow is steamed and seasoned with a delicate blend of onion, garlic, mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal and curry leaves. It is sure to tickle your taste buds. Chayote is like any summer squash and is quite bland and watery tasting by itself. Chayote fruit is used in mostly cooked forms. Raw chayote may be added to salads or salsas, most often marinated with lemon or lime juice. Whether raw or cooked, chayote is a good source of vitamin C.
