Yellow Zucchinii thuvayal/chutney

        I love chutneys or thuvayals (as called in tamil) and regular readers know I have posted a quite a few of them here. I have not seen zucchini quite often in singapore , but am quite tempted to use them in my cooking and even baking when I see them in several blogs. So I never miss a chance when I find them in the supermarket rarely and am looking forward to use them in  chocolate cake, a recipe I saw recently in some blog.
     So this time, I made a chutney with this and it tasted really good with chapatis.

Yellow Zucchini-1 chopped

I mostly make kootu with this and sometimes add it as an additional veggie for my thogayal, never stand alone - but now I know how good it can look, I am confident to make it by itself - Thanks for sharing dear :)
