Zucchini Chutney

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

This chutney comes under one of those regular dishes in my kitchen. As, we don't have any Indian store near to us, i make experiments with veggies available in my area. Yesterday, i bought these zucchini in local store. It jus looks like cucumber but  tastes different. Garlic, chili n tomato goes very well with zucchini n with a touch of  tamarind, no one can tell exactly, what the vegetable is..
