Chayote Curry with Coriander Mint Chutney

Chayote Squash is my most favorite vegetable and so I try to make as many variations of this vegetable as I can think of. This latest combination with coriander-mint chutney was suggested to me by my cousin, Mallika. 

In fact she said it would taste heavenly with potatoes and added that she would love to taste the flavor with other vegetables as well. The flavor of the coriander-mint chutney fused very well in the curry and was a delight to have. I paired with wheat bran rotis for lunch.
This forms part of the last week of CCChallenge for Nov.

Ingredients - 

Chayote Squash peeled, pitted and chopped 2 cups
Coriander-Mint Chutney 1 1/2 Tbsp
Tomato Puree (I used Pasta Sauce) 1/4 cup
Ginger Garlic paste  tsp (Optional)
Onion chopped 1/4 cup
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp)

Chayote Curry with Coriander Mint Chutney

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil, mustard seeds and cumin. After the mustard seeds pop, saute the onions until they are golden brown. 

Also add in the ginger-garlic paste (if using) and saute. Add in the coriander-mint chutney, tomato puree (or pasta sauce) and let the mixture cook well for 3-5 minutes.

Sprinkle turmeric and the chopped chayote squash, sprinkle some water, cover and let it cook until tender.

Add salt to taste and remove from fire. (I didn't garnish with coriander leaves but feel free to add some)

Serve it warm with Roti/Rice.

Preparation Time 25 min
Serves 3-4
