How to program ATmega32 using USB to TTL converter ?

That's what there using avrdude is
AVRDUDE is a utility to download/upload/manipulate the ROM and EEPROM contents of AVR microcontrollers using the in-system programming technique (ISP)
There using a uno as isp which uses avrdude you can use a lot of isp programmers with it.

Im about sure the ts is asking how to program a blank chip with avrdude
I think that the recent post by danadak provides an outline of the required process to accomplish just that.

The Arduino IDE uses avrdude to upload code. So the process should apply with a blank chip and a stand-alone avrdude, with minor modifications.

I do not recommend this method because others have complained that it is slow, but for the sake of a more complete answer, this can program a blank controller with little circuitry beyond the USB-to-Serial converter. I suggest a converter based on an FTDI converter chip be used with this.
