  • 2 tbsp rock salt (78220)

1. Chop the zucchini and onion into a small dice. In a non-metallic bowl cover the zucchini and onion with water, add the salt and leave to sit for 12–24 hours.

2. Drain the onion and zucchini and place in a pot. Add the capsicum, chopped into a similar size dice as the zucchini and onion, followed by the vinegar, sugar and spices. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Dissolve the cornflour in a little water and add to the simmering mixture. Continue to simmer uncovered for around 30 minutes until thick.
