Chow-Chow Kothamalli Chutney Recipe| Chayote Coriander Chutney|Chow Chow Chutney

Chutney with vegetable

I love to make vegetable chutneys a lot as it tastes different from our usual coconut or coriander chutney and also I love to include a vegetable dip with my main dish .Adding veggies to the chutney makes it more interesting and for kids who don't like some veggies you can actually make chutney out of them and then give them. My daughter eats all the veggies with main course but refuses to eat veggies in salads. I mostly don't have prob in giving her veggies but I see some fuzzy eaters am also including adults who are not much fan of veggies, vegetable chutney's might surprise them. I have tried carrot, beetroot, ridge gourd, bottle gourd,even mixed vegetable chutney and my h just loves them all as they are diffrent from usual chutneys. Chow chow chutney is one my fav and my H had hard time finding the veggie in this chutney.. It is fun to have guessing game with my H when try something different. You can add tadka/ tempering to the chutney if you want. Now moving on to this interesting chutney ..
