Hubby dear is very skeptical about this Halwa series, knowing very well he is going to be the person going to taste all the new halwas emerging out of the kitchen! I promised him that excepting for another vegetable halwa, rest are going to be with known things! I guess he has no choice. Chow Chow is also called as Benguluru Vankaya or Sime Badnekai. So making a halwa with this was quite interesting! Do try it, I am sure you will get to like it!
The sugar got crystallized little more than expected. So next time will have to reduce the amount of having the sugar on heat.
Chow Chow grated - 1 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup or less
Milk - 4 tbsp
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Ghee - 2 tsp
Roasted Almond for garnish
Grate the Chayote and pressure cook till tender. Keep it aside.
Roast the badam and keep aside.
Melt sugar in a pan till its all done, then add in the cooked chow chow, milk, cardamom powder and simmer for 5 mins.
Then add ghee and cook on high till the beetroot starts leaving the sides.
Finally garnish with roasted almond.
