WHAT IS KHATTI MEETHI CHUTNEY?

I’m here to give you Khatti Meethi Chutney recipe. It’s a South Asian dip. It’s delicious and packed with flavor. Jaggery dissolved in water plus tamarind concentrated paste, and other secret ingredients.

WHAT KIND OF TAMARIND DO YOU USE FOR THIS CHUTNEY?

I use tamarind concentrate paste but If you have solid tamarind instead of  tamarind concentrated paste be sure to soak the solid tamarind over overnight and take out the seeds.

WHICH JAGGERY TO USE FOR THIS RECIPE AND HOW DO I STORE IT?

I use the normal brown. There’s another kind it’s called South Indian jaggery It’s white in color. but I don’t recommend that. It has a different taste to it.  If you have extra jaggery left over, store in the freezer for future use.

WHAT ARE SOME SECRET INGREDIENTS IN KHATTI MEETHI CHUTNEY?

 Sonth (Ginger powder) 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.

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.

All Purpose Flour- It gives that unique thick consistency to your chutney. Your chutney won’t be runny like water.

Red Food Color- Just 2 pinches of red food color would take your chutney’s color to another level, and makes it a unique attractive color.

WHAT CAN I EAT THIS KHATTI MEETHI CHUTNEY WITH?

Khatti Meethi Chutney is traditionally goes along with South Asian appetizers like: Pakora, Samosa, Chaat, Speaking of Chaat check out the recipe of Sarah’s Golgappa Chaat   also this chutney goes with spring rolls, chicken nuggets, chicken strips, and many other non-South Asian appetizers.

HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP THIS KHATTI MEETHI CHUTNEY IN THE FREEZER AND FRIDGE?

I have kept this chutney in the fridge for 4-5 months and for 11-12 months in the freezer.

HOW CAN YOU FIGURE OUT IF KHATTI MEETHI CHUTNEY HAS GONE BAD?

  • If there is mold please discard the chutney right away.
  • If it smells bad please discard the chutney right away.
