Blogging Marathon# 58: Week 2/ Day 1
Theme: Dry Vegetable Sautes
Dish: Chayote & Carrot Dry Curry

We are starting a brand new week of blogging marathon and my theme for this week is ‘Dry Vegetable Sautes or Dry Curries‘. I just realized that all the themes I picked for this month require easy to make, everyday dishes which was just perfect because with the upcoming festive season, it is going to be a food fest wherever you turn 🙂This first curry doesn’t even need a recipe, it is extremely easy to make. Just saute the chopped veggies until tender and sprinkle some grated coconut on top. My mom used to make a lot of dry curries like that using cabbage, carrot, green beans, snake gourd, chayote and so on.During my initial days of cooking, I made chayote in this curry form. I didn’t think it could be used in any gravy curries until I started blogging and exploring new dishes. But I never shared my mom’s simple dry saute here, so I have it for you today.

The only change I made is to add carrot to the curry. It adds both color, nutrition and taste. This curry can be served with rice along with dal or with roti.
