Spice Tailor's Sweet Tamarind Chutni is a dark horse: deeply flavourful, lighly spiced, sweet and tangy...
Made with real, fresh ingredients and in the same way I would at home. This is more than a delicious dipping sauce and topping for Indian snacks, in fact it's wonderfully versatile. I often use it to make glazes, marinades, drizzle over a raita, or serve with grilled or BBQ meats. I hope you enjoy experimenting with it as much as we do. Anjum x.
Generally, sweet tamarind is one of India's favourite chutneys, especially up in the North, where hardly any street food can be served without a good tablespoon of it spooned over the top. Be it a samosa, a potato cake, Delhi's famous chaat dishes or even in Gujarati steamed lentil cakes.
It is the Indian ketchup, smooth like a sauce (many chutneys in India are) and is amazing as a dipping sauce, a topping for something spicy, as a glaze for grilling meats and in anything with yoghurt. It very quickly becomes a welcome store-cupboard staple.
