Common inexpensive vegetable that belongs to the gourd family, along with melons and cucumbers. Known as seemebadnekai locally. Also fondly call it Bangalore-Kathrikkai ( Bangalore-brinjal).
While cooking it in a sambar is common, a simple chow chow stir fry is also very popular. It is also said to be an ideal accompaniment for greasy meats.
Locally, it is considered to be a neutraliser for acid reflux and spicy food.
chow chow is also often grated and pickled in chilli oil and salt. Usually handled like summer squash, it is generally lightly cooked to retain the vegetable’s crispy consistency.
