What are Chutneys? Chutneys add value to any dish. They can be used as flavoring substances, toppings or accompaniments, but they enhance the taste of the dish in some way or the other. There are tongue-tickling tangy chutneys, such as the tamarind based ones, as well as soothing chutneys that usually use coconut as the base. Normally, one chooses a chutney that complements or balances the taste of the dish it is used in or served with.
There are different types of chutneys – wet chutneys, dry chutneys, freshly made ones as well as preserves. Chutneys like the Coconut Chutney or Coriander Chutney are usually made fresh, to be served with idlis, dosas and upmas. They are simple and quick, with a balanced flavor. Others like the Tomato Chutney are a little more elaborate, with a pulpy texture and a tangy taste that gives the main dish a flavorful boost. Some wet chutneys can also be kept in the fridge and used for a couple of days.
Peppy, spicy delights like the Meetha Chutney and Khajur Imli ki Chutney can be made and preserved for a while, to be served with scrumptious samosas and pakodas or to be used in the preparation of chaat items. The famous Green Chutney is another must-learn dish, indispensable in the preparation and serving of North Indian snacks.
South Indian and Maharashtrian cuisine are also well-known for their collection of dry chutneys. Dry chutneys are basically spice powders that can be served along with rice or snacks. The Dry Garlic Chutney from Maharashtra is a powerful combo of garlic, dried coconut and red chilli, which adds a spicy note to snacks like Vada Pav.
You can even go all out and make yourself a chatpata open sandwich with a sprinkling of Dry Garlic Chutney powder! If you come down South, you will be met by many more such dry chutney powders like the Milagai Podi, Curry Leaves Powder and Coconut Powder, all of which go well with South Indian snacks like idli and dosa.
