In Burma, this fried treat is made most often with bottle gourd, but chayote is more available in North America, so that’s what I use. Chayote is a pear-shaped gourd that originated in central America. Substitute zucchini if you wish.

These are easy to make and a real crowd-pleaser, crispy and tender at once, with a hint of ginger. Be sure to get your condiment sauces ready before you start cooking, because like any deep-fried snack, these are best
