Summer Squash Chutney

Continuing with the season's best.. Summer Squash

We will need,

Summer Squash  1 lb cleaned and chopped into chunks
Garlic  2-3 cloves
Chillies (red/ green) 4-5 (adjust according to taste)
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Tamarind - size of two peas
Coriander a generous handful (optional)
Black pepper  1/4 tsp
Peanut oil  3 tbsp
Mustard seeds a generous pinch
Salt to taste

  • Heat oil in a Kadai. Throw in the mustard seeds, cumin followed by the chillies.
  • Once the chillies stop sizzling add the squash, pepper,tamarind and garlic.
  • Saute till the squash is tender and garlic is mellow. Remove from fire, let it cool.
  • Once cool, combine the rest of the ingredients and pulse in a food processor to desired consistency. I like my chutney a little chunky! Serve with hot rice and ghee.
