Natco defines the standard for indian grocery and food products in UK. Natco is the biggest distributor of south asian food products including all type of lentils, spices, flours and ready to eat food. So, when I saw this Bombay sandwich spread, I assumed that this is standard product and bought it straighaway. It was around £1.29 in local indian grocery store in Hounslow, London.
I could not wait to go home and make chutney sandwich, which is generally enjoyed with afternoon tea in bombay. Very simple recipe.. Half melt (due to hot weather) Amul brand butter and green chutney is applied between two slices of white bread.
So, when I opened the bottle I was really disappointed with the smell of this sandwich spread. Very weird smell of preservatives. I then gathered some courage to taste it. Yuk.. It tastes like tamarind soup with lot of preservatives in it.. Very bad product from a well known brand. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone who has slightest idea of green chutney. I chucked it in the dustbin straightaway.
Those who wants to enjoy the original taste, just make it at home. It doesn't take that long.. Check out lot of recipe on the internet..
But never ever try this one..
