Squash cake (Okoy na kalabasa)

When it comes to vegies, innovations should be done. I don't know but my husband and kids don’t want the same recipe for vegetables over and over again.  No repetitions, but modifications and revisions can fool them.  So, instead of making soups, stews and sautes with my squash, I grated it and make into squash cakes! Nice idea and a good job!  Everybody loves it. Yumyum!

Getting ready for cooking , okoy na kalabasa (squash cake)

Grate 1 medium-sized squash in a cheese grater.
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 pieces ripe finger chili or 1 bell pepper
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 whole egg
2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
Oil for frying

Mix the ingredients together.  Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Scoop some of the mixture and put on hot oil. Flatten with the bottom of a turner. Cook each side for 3 minutes at medium fire.  Drain on paper towel to remove excess oil. 
Serve hot!  Super good and nutritious!

Dip: Vinegar with garlic or just plain tomato catsup
