Here i am using the inside part of zucchini,which contains small seeds sort .You can prepare this with cabbage,the hard part of the cabbage,the inner part of padvalkai,bottle guard, skin of herekai(ridge guard)etc.In Mangalore there were recipe if a take some vegetable then with its every part like seeds,skin and the main veggie there will be some recipe.If you don't want to do with the skin or the inner portion of the vegetable ,you can prepare the same with main part of the vegetable.
For example if you cut cabbage ,there will be hard parts in between with which you can prepare this chutney(why waste) and which really good.some time this part of the vegetable will be very Nutritious but most of the time we trow it away.
1" tamarind /1/2 tsp tamarind paste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
4-6 red chilies
2 tsp urad dal
1/2 cup fresh grated coconut
1 green chili(optional)
1-3 pieces hing/1/4 tsp hing powder(asafoetida)
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp urad dal
1 red chili broken into pieces
pinch of hing
cut this part ,put into a bowl.add salt,tamarind,jaggary and turmeric powder and sprinkle water on it.coo this in pressure cooker or microwave.
Grind this with the cooked vegetable in blender into smooth paste .don't add too much water.
Finally give tadka(seasoning).
