An Academic's Take On Food and Life
Tamarind chutney is often used in Indian food. Some typical uses are in a snack called Bhel Puri. The khajur imli chutney can be replaced by the tamarind chutney you have. If you can't find the other ingredients, the sev is a chickpea spicy fried noodle, and the green mango is there for some tartness, so something like an unripe peach. Another use is as a sauce for samosas, a fried triangular pastry filled with peas and potatoes.
It makes a fine marinade for grilled pork or chicken and would pair well with your mint!It sounds as if you are having some sourcing problems here in Lafayette.I can probably help.srmcnern at purdue dot eduSeanBanquet Chef PMU
I do recall having the tamarind sauce on samosas back in LA. I unfortunately dont make them here since there is a really good indian place in town.But, I will have to try it as a marinade then.
