Because our Flavours of Kerala were a revelation to so many of you, we’ve put together a few more flavours from around…oh…the whole country! We’ve got a little east, a little west, a little north and a little south. This latest Eatelish Box is filled with flavours from Jharkand, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu.
In the box:
Laal Mirch ka Achaar – Made with gorgeous, bright red chilis, picked fresh in the winter months and pickled to last you for many months after. This pickle is an intense experience, not for the mild-hearted and delicate-tongued. Fresh red chilis are slit and filled with a mix of their own seeds, mustard & fennel seeds and spices and left to soak up the sun before being pickled in mustard oil. This pickle is fiery, bright and delicious. The heat you feel on your lips and tongue will be worth it as every bite is a wild flavour experience.
Mathri – A flaky, savoury biscuit from Rajasthan, these are the best version of Mathri we’ve had in years. They are a perfect tea-time snack with a moreish crunch that’ll keep you coming back.
Pudina Sadam – A fragrant and exceptionally flavorful mint rice dish from Tamil Nadu where a variety of quick rice dishes are a standard in the kitchens of busy home cooks. This little Pudina Sadam mix will set you on your way to creating your own Mint Rice in super quick time. Just add rice and the mix will do the rest.
Tilkut – A winter specialty from Jharkhand, jaggery and crushed sesame seeds are roasted together in an earthen pot before being beaten into compressed, burgeoning discs of deliciousness. Tilkut is a close cousin of Gajak and Brittle, although this version is slightly softer and more crumbly. There is a beautiful, mildly bitter crunch of the crushed sesame mingled with the caramel sweetness of jaggery that we can’t get enough of.
Lehsuni Sev – A treat from Maharashtra, this traditional snack has a delectable garlic flavor that is irresistible. Crispy and crunchy, Lehsuni Sev can be had straight out of the bag or tossed with chopped onions, tomatoes and chilis.
