India has almost as many chutneys as it does gods and like the gods, they are a part of everyday life.

The word chutni (the Indian spelling) comes from the Sanskrit root word chaat, which essentially means lick-your-fingers good. We‘ve used the Indian spelling of chutney for our handy little pots to differentiate them from the British idea of chutney being a sweet, vinegary side-kick of a condiment. Chutneys in India can be sweet, spicy, tangy, nutty or zingy. They are much loved and perk up every-day meals, street food, snacks, kebabs and flatbreads. Indeed, there are few occasions that do not warrant a delicious dollop of some kind of chutni.


Ours are perfect to add flavour to your meal but are also really great kitchen helpers and double-up as a way to enrich the flavour of a sauce, a stir-fry or transform a marinade. They are the ultimate kitchen short-cuts or kitchen hacks for home cooks.

And last but not least, The Spice Tailor’s single-serve pots are table-ready and free from preservatives, colourings and flavourings.
