‘Naanis and Daadis are THE BEST CHEFs in the Universe’. We all just have to agree about this one fact that there’s nothing that compares to the food cooked by our grandmothers. Whether it’s paranthas, sabzi, biryanis, or simple khichdi, we love to eat everything that comes from their kitchen.
This saunth which is an Indian sauce / chutney / dressing helps you :
- Enjoy your salads – be it fruits or any other combination, the sweet, spicy and tangy flavor or this dressing can make any salad exciting.
- Eat your chaats in the comfort of your home without worrying about hygiene issues. Yes, its the same sauce they top Chaat with in Mathura and in Old Delhi. Bhalla, Paapdi, Tikki, Gol Gappa, Shakarkandi etc
- Elevate your street style snacks to next level and serve them with authentic Indian sauce, which is made to make bhajia, samosa and vadas come into their own.
My Naani was from Kamptee, suburb of Nagpur city, Maharashtra, and married my handsome Nanaji who hails from Sitaram Bazaar, Purani Dilli, Delhi. She brought with her the culinary influences of Nagpur. As kids, we were never exposed to much packaged food and fresh homemade offerings were our only diet.
Naani used to make Meethi Amchur ki Chutney or Saunth which was the heart of all our meals. It had the right amount of spices, saltiness, sweetness and tanginess that would spark any meal, be it pairing with pakoras, fried snacks, paranthas, dahi ke gulgule (our ever favourite), mathis, and just about anything.😋 My favourite way of having it was topping it with cut bananas, mango pieces, pomegranate or just about any seasonal fruit and keep on licking it and relishing it for as long as I could stretch time🙈. It makes as the best fruit chaat dressing that I have experienced. This is Baap of all chutneys or ketchup for me.
Naani would send us big jars of love and before we would run out of them, a fresh batch would always be replenished. One lick of this yumminess and the tongue goes rolling to make the clicking chatkara sound😋
Over the years with hit and trials, I have finally come with peace at the closest that I can get to Naani’s recipe of making this delight. Presenting a piece of my childhood- which is sure to twirl your tongue to strike a chatkara smile😀.
