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 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.
