Instant/Zatpat Zucchini Pickle

As the name suggests, recipe is very easy. For the recipe,we need very few basic ingredients which are mostly used in day-to-day cooking( Indian cooking). The disadvantage is you can't preserve this for long. You should refrigerate this pickle and consume within 2-3 days.

please get back to me with your feedback after you try !!

2-3 handfuls of finely chopped Zucchini 
1 tsp cooking oil
5-6 dry red chilies
