Chow Chow Pachadi

Chow Chow Pachadi, this is one of the famous Kerala recipe prepared during Onam festival. This dish is a part of Onam Sadhya Menu among various other pachadis served. I love this recipe. I remember reading this recipe in some magazine and made a note of it. This recipe can be made very easily when you have the coconut milk ready in hand. We are going to use only the thin milk that is second or third extracted milk. So you can use the first milk for some other recipes like Payasam, Appam, Fish Curry etc.
