This thogayal does not need coconut and is prepared only with Chayote squash or chow chow & lentils.  Fiber rich, low calorie condiment that pairs well with plain rice, Variety rice and also with Idli/Dosa.

If you like add temper to the thogayal by heating 1 tsp oil - then add 1/4 tsp mustard seeds & little cumin seeds/jeera allow to pop, then add curry leaves fry well and add it to the thogayal.
Instead of coconut ..adding vegetable is great and healthy choice.
