WHATS IT LIKE:
This obscure condiment hails from Goa in India, due to the unrelenting heat in summer many of the chutneys are preserved in oil to protect them. As a result these condiments are insanely flavourful as they marinate and mellow out in the jars and impart their flavour into the oil as well which is sometimes decanted as a separate condiment.
Our version features Italian eggplant, Kashmiri chilli, garlic as well as mum’s secret blend of spices. It also has copious amounts of vinegar that give it its signature “hot and sour” flavour synonymous with Goan cuisine from the influence of its Portuguese heritage.
WHAT IT GOES GREAT WITH:
This condiment is classically paired with dal, rice and vegetables and other simply seasoned fare as the eggplant chutney adds a flavour boost to a simple weekday meal.
We highly recommend using the same train of thought and adding a spoon to you hummus toast, avocado breakfast muffin or even your grain bowl to add an umami boost and get your reaching for the next bite!
