Zucchini chutney tastes good with rice, rotti, idli, chapathi ..
Zucchini is one of the summer squashes. It looks like cucumber but tastes more like ridge gourd/heerekayi. We can use the zucchini in place of ridge gourd. We can make zucchini rice, zucchini raita. We can add this to rotti as well. It is a very low calorie vegetable, good source of dietary fiber. Also zucchini is a very good source of potassium.
Almost 22 years ago my good friend taught me this zucchini chutney . I have made some changes over the years and been doing this recipe since then.
