Shopping at London, Ontario's fantastic Indian mart Indo-Asian Groceries and Spices reminded me of this the other day - found more varities of spices than I had ever knew existed. We found coconut and mango juice, gulab jamon and fenugreek seeds along with okra ("lady fingers") for a curry dish we made later that day. Along with these delights was mustard and sesame oil as well as very inexpensive bulk items like cartons of Nag Champa and massive jars of every chutney imaginable! Flavours such as coriander and tamarind looked delicious and got me in the mood for trying an impromptu recipe of my own. This are the ingredients for a medium-spice and medium-sweet level chutney...because savoury and sugary is premium! This was great on toast with soy cheese on a cold and snowy winter day. Serve with low or salt free dipping chips and garnish with cucumber. Of course, place this along side any Indian recipe for a fully enhanced dish.
tumeric, cumin, corriander, curry powder, garlic (cloves or powder), ginger (fresh and/or paste), graham masala, masala, cinnamon, nutmeg, macha powder (for some good anti-ox mesaure!)
