The richness of India's regional cuisines is often reflected in the many chutneys we have. Chutneys are considered an accompaniment - they are a side dish to be consumed in combination with a main course or appetiser. But we well know that this does not make them any less important. Chutneys lend an explosion of freshness, flavour and texture without which most dishes would feel incomplete. Can you imagine eating vada pav without any chutney? Well, you might eat it, but won't enjoy it. Similarly, don't many of us just love coconut chutney along with our idli and dosas? Sambhar alone is not always satisfying. And what about hari chutney? Many of our snacks and pakoras would seem rather tasteless without it.
