Chayote Squash or in tamil we call it as Chow Chow is a very healthy veggie. It is one veggie less in calories and also rich in vitamin. Chow Chow Stir-fry is a very tasty poriyal variety. I have enriched the poriyal by adding onions and capsicum and also dry grinding raosted gram dal along with coconut. We can make plain stir-fry also, but the onions and capsicum adds a nice flavour to the dish. This Chow Chow Poriyal ( Chayote Squash Stir-Fry) goes well with any SouthIndian main courses.
