“I had way to many patty pan squash this year. This was a great way to use them. This is a hot spicy chunky relish with a hint of garlic. You will need to go to an ethnic Indian store to get the spice mix for it. One is a very red/orange Hot Garlic Chutney dry spice mix and the other is a curry powder that is very golden because it has a lot of turmeric. There are many different brands that have differing flavors. So just experiment. Should be fun. I love this with pinto beans.”
