  • Chaat Tostadas from Seven Spoons Cookbook

    Chaat is one of our most favorite snacks to eat. It's an Indian street food made with crunchy chips, cool yogurt, spicy chutneys, diced veggies, chickpeas, potatoes and herbs.  We made a version of this delicious dish from our friend Tara O'Brady's new cookbook Seven Spoons.  She had the brilliant idea of making chaat on top of Mexican tostadas.  In place of her tamarind chutney, we used our tomato achaar, which has tamarind in it and fresh local tomatoes. Get the recipe on Chitra's blog here.

  • THE Best Spicy Ketchup

    Can't believe it's taken us this long to finally make a spicy ketchup with our tomato achaar.  To make it, use one part of your favorite ketchup with one part our tomato achaar and mix it together to get the most flavorful and spicy ketchup you've ever tasted. Then proceed to dip everything you can think of in it! Our first dip was with ambode, a South Indian lentil fritter made with black chickpeas. You can get the recipe for ambode at Chitra's blog here.

  • Featured in New York Magazine!

    We're featured in the newest issue of New York Magazine that is devoted to all things Food & Drink. Can't believe it's been less than a year since we've been in business. Pinching ourselves! The editors at NY Magazine write: "Brooklyn Delhi's tomato achaar. So good you'll want to plop it on everything, if not spoon it down straight from the jar." The spread is all about The New York Larder, contemporary vs. classic. We feel very lucky to be pictured with some of our favorite local foods like Brooklyn Brine, Morris Kitchen, Sfoglini, White Moustache Yogurt! Love the look...
