Seemebadhnekai sasve

Seemebadhnekai is also called as chayote and cho cho. Today I present yet another dish from the malnad and south canara region.
Sasve means mustard. Since the flavor of these seeds are dominant in the dish it probably borrows the name.

1 medium sized chayote, chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp oil
1/4 cup curds
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves.
Salt to taste
For sasve paste
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 green chilli
4 tbsp grated coconut

How to go about…
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. Once the mustard crackles, add the chopped chayote. Cook the chayote with the lid closed. Chayote cooks really fast especially if its tender.


Grind coconut, green chilli and mustard with little water to make a smooth paste.


Add the paste to the cooked chayote.


Next, add the curds. Mix it well.


Garnish it with coriander leaves. Enjoy your sasve with rice or as a salad.
