i live in canada and haven't been able to find tamarind. is there a substitute? molasses maybe?
Hi Saryn, Tamarind add a tang to the chutney. You can add some lemon juice at the end instead.

What is Zuchini
Hi Dahlia, I would like to know whar zuchini is called in tamil?? Also i tried your chicken biriyani,it came out really well..Thanks for azn amazing recipe!!
i honestly do not know the tamil name of zucchini. but it is similar to cucumber and comes under the summer squash family. check this link for more information on zucchini http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zucchini.
in india, this vegetable comes occasionally in big supermarkets. if you are not able to find zucchini, you can substitute it with bottlegaurd(sorakai) or cucumber in curries. but for chutney i dont think that will work. good to hear that you tried chicken biriyani.
