Pani Puris Feat. Woolf’s Kitchen’s Tamarind Ketchup

We were lucky enough to get our hands (or should we say fingers!) on Woolf’s Kitchen’s Tamarind Ketchup

Sweet and tangy with a hint of roasted chilli, this rather addictive sauce is a great all round condiment, whatever the weather.

Dominique Woolf (Founder of Woolf’s Kitchen) takes inspiration from her rich Thai heritage, as well as her travels from around the world, notably in Mexico and India.

This sauce is based on an age-old family recipe passed down by her Aunt, evoking memories of sweet, spicy, fresh sauces she’d whip up and pour on just about everything.

This week we rustled up some Pani Puris (also known as Gol-Gappas) using Woolf’s Kitchen’s Tamarind Ketchup which went down a real storm.

Believed to have originated in Northern India over 100 years ago, Pani Puris consist of a hollow puri (a deep-fried crispy crepe), filled with a mixture of fragrantly spiced, potatoes, chickpeas and onions in a tamarind sauce, served with imli pani (water)

A quintessential pan-Indian street food snack, these little beauties will be sure to start a party in your mouth!
