Yellow Squash Chutney

Friday, November 13, 2009

Squash is loosely grouped into summer squash or winter squash, as well as autumn squash (another name is cheese squash) depending on whether they are harvested as immature vegetables (summer squash) or mature vegetables (autumn squash or winter squash). Well known types of squash include the pumpkin and zucchini.

In my town, all i have is wal mart and a local county store to shop for vegetables. So i do experiments with the available veggies. yesterday, i bought this yellow squash twins to make chutney. I started with a doubt how it tastes and ended with a big surprise, The taste is so delicious and tempting that we cant skip this vegetable from our list.
I made yellow squash chutney by adding bell pepper for spiciness, 3C's ( cumin, coriander n channa dal) for that authentic Indian taste, Tamarind for sour n sweetness  n the main important ingredient for chutneys, none another than... Garlic....... and last but not least cilantro for garnishing.
