Khatti Meethi Chutney

Vaquas: This week I’m here to give you Khatti Meethi Chutney recipe. It is a South Asian dip. This is a New Delhi street food chutney. It’s delicious yet tangy. This is one of the recipes that reminds me of my childhood days with my mom. She’d always have serval batches in the fridge and freezer for us.

If you have solid tamarind instead of  tamarind concentrated paste be sure to soak the solid tamarind over overnight and take out the seeds. Also, if you have extra jaggery left over, store in the freezer for future use.   Most people don’t use ginger powder in this chutney but to me the ginger powder (sonth) makes a huge difference, It gives a unique flavor in this chutney. Lastly, I have used black salt;  I truly love black salt I believe it can change a taste of a dish from being great to being AMAZING! like I have said in the pervious post don’t over use it to intensify the taste it can harm the body. The is a SECRET INGRIDENT is the all purpose flour which helps thickens the chutney.

This chutney is traditionally goes along with South Asian appetizers but also goes with spring rolls, chicken nuggets, chicken strips, and many other non-South Asian appetizers. Our toddler loves this chutney, sometimes she just want to drink it raw. This chutney is toddler approved. I hope you give this recipe a try.
