In Chai, Chaat & Chutney, Chetna has taken inspiration from the four corners of India - Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi and Chennai - sampling the street food and creating delicious recipes that are simple to cook at home. Each area has subtle differences in ingredients and techniques, making the cuisine completely unique and full of character. The result is a completely fresh take on Indian cuisine - try Tamarind Stuffed Chillis, Chana Dal Vada with Coconut Chutney and Sticky Bombay Chicken from the South or let your senses venture to the North for Chole, one of the ultimate curries, sweet Carrot Halwa, Pani Puri and Cardamom & Pistachio Kulfi.
