As a staple of Indian cuisine, chutney can be found on the dining table during every mealtime. In fact, there are a variety of different types that can be made by combining both familiar and new ingredients together in order to deliver a flavoursome experience like never before. Here at Royal Nawaab, we want to help our readers understand the depth of Indian cuisine by exploring the different chutneys that are popular within the culture. Read on to find out more…


Fruity and chunky with a sweet and sour kick, a pineapple chutney is a side dish that can be spice varied by altering the number of chillies that is implemented during the preparation. In fact, it has an impressive shelf life and can be kept in the cupboard for several weeks before it will start to show signs of spoilage.


As the most well-known Indian pachadi, there is nothing more satisfying than dipping a poppadum into a well-made mango chutney. In fact, an authentically made mango chutney will boast a wide range of flavours and spices which can be varied using chillies and mustard seeds.


Kebabs and starters on the dining table wouldn’t be complete without a traditional coriander chutney. In fact, this pachadi is so popular that every Indian household tends to have their own recipe! It uses curd in order to create a creamy texture that will enhance the flavours and can be blended with spices like cumin too.

Tamatar Ki

With a chopped tomato base, this chutney has a spicy kick with a sweet aftertaste that will leave diners longing for more. In fact, it is even eaten as a side dish alongside south Indian breakfast foods and is incredibly simple to make from a few household essentials.

Olive Gur

As an Assamese delicacy, an olive gur chutney is a tangy pachadi made from olives, honey and a variety of different spices like chilli powder, mustard oil and paanch phoron. Although it isn’t very well known in the western world, it is a chutney that will certainly leave the taste buds tingling with excitement.
