Posted by admin on Aug - 16 - 2015 under Gravies / Curry, Side Dish

I know now a days I rarely release movies, though many of them are waiting to hit the blog. With lots of political pressures, it’s very hard to release. My smallest, sorry the very biggest sweet pressure my child artist never allows me to do my work and she constantly acts as if she needs attention. She lost my laptop charger pin and nearly it took a week to find it, Turned the entire home upside down still cant find at last she safely hides it in my RH’s old shoe. Very naughty pie…

Okay coming to today’s movie Chow Chow or Chayote kootu is often occurring in my kitchen theatre. My mom used to direct very rarely with this Hero but I love to direct lots of different movies like sambar, chutney and kootu. One among a normal side dish movie is what we are going to see today. I love to pair this with black-eyed beans gravy.
