Hop Right In!

I believe that salt is to food, what food is to life. In right proportions, it can heighten the taste of what you eat..and in the wrong - destroy! Even the most delicious sweets come added with some salt...to taste!

As for me, I've never enjoyed cooking. And as contrary to my owning a food-blog as it may sound, I always think about daily, routine cooking as a chore. But my tryst with the pots and pans began when I got a kitchen all to myself...I began experimenting and exploring new worlds in my own home. Some outcomes were excellent and some plain disasters. Then sprouted the need to keep track of all those good ones...and hence this blog!

Here, I share those experiments that pleased more than one palate!

Quick and Easy Sweet Tamarind Chutney

3 fl. oz Thick tamarind paste
3/4th cup Jaggery (Panela), finely crushed

- In a vessel, pour the tamarind paste and dilute to make it about 5 fl. oz.
- Turn on the flame and add the jaggery and continuously stir
- Reduce to about half the quantity
- Turn off the flame

Noteworthy Notes
The above mentioned quantities makes about 2.5 fl. oz. of sweet tamarind chutney that can be used in chaats to provide a sweet and tangy flavour. This is a quick and easy version that I use when I dont have store bought chutney.
