We’ve all put mustard, ketchup, and other “fixings” on a hot dog. Mayonnaise on a turkey sandwich, hot sauce on a piece of pizza, blue cheese and ranch on buffalo wings: there are many staples of the condiment shelf in your fridge, and some may be more exotic than others, but a pair of guys on Kickstarter are aiming to take your taste buds to a new level.
Dan Garblik and Lalit Kalani, the two co-founders of Bandar Foods, are readying two types of Indian chutneys, re-imagined and packaged into squeeze bottles for a familiar American twist.
Their argument for why Indian chutney should be in your cabinet? Sriracha, or “rooster sauce”, is nice, hot, and works with many food combinations. Personally, I enjoy it on my eggs.
Spicy Mango Chili Sauce and Mint Cilantro Chili Sauce are the two flavors that Bandar Monkey Sauce will start with. They’ve reformulated the chutneys, turning them into squeeze-appropriate mixtures for 7oz bottles.
Kickstarter pledges will go towards, for the most part, receiving bottles of the initial shipment, but t-shirts (and even a full, five-course meal for six people) are up for grabs. While donations start at $10, the bottles will retail for less than half of that (between $3.49 and $3.99); Whole Foods in Boston has already agreed to try the sauce out. I’m looking forward to the Spicy Mango, myself. Seems like it’d be a great way to kick-up chicken.
