New In The Freezer:
Not quite the homemade taste but much better than the bottled stuff that masquerades as chutney. I found Mint Chutney and Coriander Chutney from Deep in my Indian grocer's frozen section. There are four containers, each about half cup, in each carton adding to the convenience factor.
I preferred the mint chutney as it was tangier. The spice level is mild with the mint being slightly more spicy. I am not a fan of packaged ready-to-eat Indian food, frozen or otherwise, but this is something I plan to stock in my freezer. It won't stop me from making my own chutneys but these are a huge time saver!
Update May 31, 2007: I found coconut chutney and concentrate for pani puris. The coconut chutney is reasonably OK. I haven't tried the pani concentrate yet.
New On The Block: Yet another well-written Indian food blog, Evolving Tastes, with beautiful pictures. I've learned a lot from her in the past and I am looking forward to being regaled some more! Especially when it comes to Maharashtrian food. If her twist on the revered sabudana khichadi is anything to go by, I know I am only going to be enthralled!!
