Many of you may wonder about the name. You have read it right. It is SQUASH CHUTNEY for Idly / Dosa / Chapati. One day, at my friend’s place she served me this Mooli Paratha (Radish Chapati) and this squash chutney. Both were new to me and it tasted delicioius. I got the recipe from her and these became a regular menu in my kitchen.


Today I am sharing a chutney recipe using squash. I am using yellow squash and green squash together. You could use any one of them or both of them as per your choice.
