Restaurant style Tamarind chutney/ Khatti-Meethi Saunth Chutney/Sonth Chutney/ Imli ki chutney

 

The samosa you bought, wouldn’t taste the same; the chat or pakoras you made will also not taste the same, if not accompanied by the sweet and sour chutney. Yes, you guessed it right; I am talking about saunth chutney or tamarind chutney. It is the same chutney that you see in the weddings and your mouth drools for the chat or tikki on which it is poured. Tamarind chutney is traditionally made from tamarind and saunth (dried ginger powder), hence the name saunth chutney. It tastes so magical that it can convert a simple basic thing into scrumptious dish, be it curd or fruits etc. You too can make this chutney by following this simple recipe.
