Chow chow / chayote squash chutney recipe – Side dish for dosas

Chow chow or Bangalore kathrikkai or chayote squash is widely available Indian vegetable even in the local supermarkets of Singapore.Actually the fact is this is one vegetable used mostly in the south indian kitchen and also by many races of the people throughout the world.

The squash is quite tasteless , so it tastes good when spiced adequately. I made the chutney slightly different than…

 

Dried peas pasta chundal recipe -Navrathri special

How to make Pulihora– Andhra style tamarind rice recipe

We have a lot of Andhra people in our neighbourhood. So whenever I have visited their homes during some get togethers or religious functions, I have always had pulihora. Our Aiyengar style puliyodharai is a slightly different recipe, and takes a fairly long time to make the pulikachal.

Once a friend send me a box of this pulihora. She had made with broken rice…

I got this recipe from my grandmom during my recent visit to India.She wanted to make it one day when we were there, but our trip was so short that we could not taste.

Mango gives a nice taste and flavour to the morkuzhumbu.Any variety of mango can be used and its really okay even if the mango is bit sour.Try it during this summer and enjoy this mango delicacy!! Serve with rice and…

Mor kuzhumbu would be a nice side dish for…

I decided to make chutney with it as I had once tasted at a friends place years ago but had never bothered for the recipe. I decided to check the Internet for the recipe and found in several sites.

Next day, I used the same chutney for dosa and that…
