Garlic - 2 (crushed)
Red chillies - 4
Urad dal - 2 tbsp

1. Take a pan and nicely roast all the ingredients listed under Red chilli powder. Once it is done, cool them and grind into fine powder.
2. Take another pan add some oil and fry the zucchini until they are golden brown.
3. Grind zucchini along with salt, red chilli powder( above made), tamarind paste, ground nuts. Grind them until you get the chutney consistency. If you feel like to add water, add it when required.
