Chow Chow Thol Thogaiyal/Chow Chow Peel Thogaiyal

Today, I am going to share a very easy, quick and healthy thogaiyal using the peel of Chow Chow. This is a very delicious thogaiyal that can be served as side dish for idlis/dosas or even with steam cooked white rice. So next time you make chow chow at home, do not throw away the peel. Meanwhile do check out other interesting 45 different Chutney& Thogaiyal varieties that I have posted earlier.

Wash and peel the chow chow and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan, add urad dal fry until golden brown color.

Add red chillies and fry for about 30-40 seconds.

Now add chow chow peel and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until it turns soft.

Next add tamarind, asafoetida and give a good stir and switch off the stove.

Let it cool, then add everything to a mixer and grind it along with salt to a thick paste adding little water.

For tempering, heat oil in a small pan, splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves for about 30 seconds and switch off the stove.

Add the tempering to the Chow Chow Thogaiyal. Serve it with steam cooked white rice or with idlis/dosas.
