Sweet Tamarind Chutney

Sweet Tamarind Chutney

...This recipe is basic, classic, and just the thing you need to keep those family traditions alive. I use imlee ki chutney all year round, but there's something about the time of year when Ramadan is coming closer, and you just want those classic comfort foods to surround you as you fast the month away. Food has memories attached to them, which is why we make certain foods for certain holidays, and a good old imlee ki chutney is just what you need this Ramadan...

Papri Chaat

Papri Chaat

Papri Chaat is the king of chaats. Just the sight of it makes me happy. And honestly, what's not to love? Chickpeas and potatoes are drenched in spicy chutneys and a cooling yogurt sauce. Everything is topped with freshly ground cumin and crunchy papad(papar?). I'm a purist when it comes to papri chaat. If you follow a few simple steps you can get amazing papri chaat at home. In fact, it's better than takeout. I can't tell you how many times I've ordered papri chaat from Indian/ Pakistani restaurants only to be disappointed. I've added some recipes notes to get you the perfect results every time.

I don't mind buying ready made chutneys, but there are two that I make the effort to make, especially during Ramadan, because I like my version the best and also because they make me feel a little closer to home! They have such deep and concentrated flavors that a little goes a long way and there's nothing like a well made chutney that instantly transports you back home. Hari Chutney, or mint chutney, is such a classic...
