There is nothing more Indian than a hearty traditional meal that comes with a side of a spicy curry, a lip-smacking achaar or a marvelous chutney. From Dosa with gun powder in the South to fiery Pork Curry in the North East and every cuisine in between, Indians are accustomed to spicy accompaniments with every meal.

The Original flavour of the sauce has hints of Maharashtrian flavors and feature the Sankeshwari Chilli commonly used in Kohlapuri food.
