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 bakingwhen 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.

Saute till the onion turns slightly brown.Now add the zucchini and along with salt and cook till it turns soft.Add the grated coconut and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from flame. Place the tamarind in the mixture and allow it to cool. Then grind the mixture to a smooth paste adding a few drops of water.
