Hey guys, I thought it might be fun to start up a kind of food related, word association game. I'll post something below - The idea being that the next person posts a flavour or ingredient that matches well with the one before it.

Hopefully, if all goes to plan, we could end up with some interesting links, so here we go!

Cloves.

A restaurant in my town serves their cheese plate with dried apricots that have been reconstituted in a clove-inflected syrup. Gorgeous.

Tamarind! as in Tamarind chutney, AKA imli chutney,

a most necessary sweet-tangy-hot dip for samosas, pakoras, etc etc.

Cumin spices up just about any savory recipe and

it's an important flavor note in Imli Chutney (other ingredients

vary, but include tamarind of course, then rock salt,

ground up raisins, jaggery or brown sugar

if jaggery not available, red chilli powder, maybe a tad of

garam masala, water, etc.)

argh! Swisskaese just beat me to it, but I still

keep my reply as Tamarind:

I found a recipe on line for "Spicy Black Beans in Tamarind

Sauce" in an Indian recipes forum, so I'll repeat:

Tamarind!
