CHOW CHOW RAITHA - CHOYATE RAITHA

RM 2 # Day 10



Well chow chow in india is called Banglore Brinjal. The botanical name  is Choyate . ( source from wikipedia ) Tastes like cucumber but little bit softer in texture.more to say my hubby wasn’t happy when I said the name but when I served him he emptied the pot.


Ingredients

Chow chow ( choyote)- 1 ea
Yoghurt- 1 cup
Cilantro- 2 tsp(chopped)
Salt- to taste

Method


Peel the skin & grate the chow chow.




Mix yoghurt, salt, chopped cilantro & grated chow chow.

Serve with rice or rotis.
