Chutney is a feeling for me, it is nostalgic. It brings back so many memories from my childhood. My grandmother was popularly known as ‘Chutney Aunty’ in the family. She used to make different types of chutneys in large patches, and fill her tangy, sour chutneys in jars, and carry them to every household in the neighborhood, and family. It was the most awaited jars in my summers. Today, long after her death, chutneys bring back her pure hugs and sour advice to me.
Chutneys are a delicious way to add flavor to any dish. There are many different types of chutney, and each one has its own unique flavor. There are many chutneys available in the market, sharing my top favorites to tang up your dining tables.
My Top 5 Chutney Hits
The Fresh Knock – Shangrila Green Chili Sauce
- Comes in a pouch
- Available in three different sizes
- Is fresh and tangy
- Should ideally be named as Chutney
There’s nothing quite like a plate of hot, fresh pakoras with a green chili sauce to enjoy on a rainy day. I am a big fan of pakoras, and always have a jar of Shangrila green chili sauce in the fridge to enjoy with them. The tanginess of this chutney cuts through the richness of the pakoras, and the freshness really brightens up the flavors. A plate of Pakoras, and some green chili sauce, a perfect fix to your dull evenings.
