Chayote Gravy ( Chow Chow Kootu)

I transform most of the vegetables in the form of kootu to make my two year old eat some vegetables. I usually make with Chayote, Ridge Gourd, Bottle Gourd, Cabbage & Potato combo and Spinach .

Chayote - 2
Moong Dhal-1/4 cup

To Grind
Coconut - 2 tbs
Cumin seeds -1 tsp
Green chillies-3
Small onions-2
Garlic cloves-1

For Tampering
Mustard seeds
Curry Leaves
Red Chillies-1 (optional)

Peel the Skin of Chayote and cut into small pieces. Boil Moong in a pan with water. Once the Moong gets half cooked add the Chayote Pieces to it. Grind together coconut, Green chillies, Cumin seeds and Garlic Clove. Add the paste and turmeric to the Vegetable. Tamper the Mustard seeds in oil . Add Curry Leaves and hing and add it to the gravy.
