    Hi!
    I live in new orleans, louisiana, usa and we call the chayote a mirleton (pronounced mell uh tun). We were in Jamaica recently and they call it a cho cho.

    Here's a traditional way to make it down here..

    Madhu,
    I saw this vegetable for the first time about a month back at the SriLankan store here in Düsseldorf. I asked the shop owner what it was called and how it was cooked. He knew the name only in SriLankan Tamil and told me that the veggie was prepared like any other veggie. Well, that didn’t help me at all. I am so happy to see it on your blog. Haven’t checked out your recipe yet. But I am sure gonna make it, because I like cooking new vegetables.

    Hi Madhu,

    Tried this recipe and it tasted very good.

    My recipe is slightly different, there is no mustard and tamarind in the paste, rest is the same. Adding these 2 ingredients made so much difference and it was nice for a change.
