Kobbari Chutney Pudi, or Dry Coconut Chutney Powder, is something I’ve only recently discovered through an ex-partner. From time to to time his family would send these lovely little care packages brimming with sweet and spicy treats from home. It was the first time I had smelled such an interesting mix of sweet, spicy and buttery aromas that had me hooked on learning to cook Indian food after years of only eating the typical dishes you’d find in American “Indian” restaurants in the early 2000s.
If you’re looking for an easy, healthy way to perk up your dishes for very little money lacto-fermentation is a great way…
The mouth tingling heat from the chilies combined with the amazing aroma of fermented garlic makes a wonderful addition to anything from braised meats to hot pot; salad dressings to BBQ. This affordable, easy to make flavor packed fermented gem is a must have for any Asian food lover(s)!
