  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch (optional)
  • 1 tsp powdered black pepper


  1. Slice chayote into strips.
  2. Chayote cut into long thin pieces.
  3. Pour a cup of water and add salt. Mix well then soak for about 30 minutes.
  4. Adding water to the chayote pieces.
  5. Drain soaked chayote.
  6. The drained chayote pieces.
  7. Mix together flour, corn starch and powdered black pepper.
  8. Mixing flour and spices together.
  9. Add egg and a tablespoon of water.
  10. Adding an egg to the flour mixture.
    The blended flour/egg mixture.

Looks tasty. I've never tried chayote before. It seems like any squash could be used in this recipe.
