Tamarind Chutney

Get your papdams ready. This tamarind chutney goes great with them.

The first time I served this tamarind chutney it was as a starter with papadams. I knew I loved it but wasn’t sure how it would be received. It’s a lot different to what you find at most curry houses. 

I needn’t have worried. In fact it was devoured that evening. My guests loved the look and flavour and were bagging me for the recipe.

I also often serve this tamarind chutney with dosas and idlis as it works perfectly with those too

This one is sweet, sour, savoury and spicy. It also has a nice crunch to it. If you’re looking for a chutney that is sure to impress, this is it.

I like to serve popadams, idlis and dosas with three of four different chutneys, all with totally different flavours. They are all quite simple to make and some more of my favourite chutneys are listed below
