Chef Gourmet is showing us a spinach chutney recipe, which is in Indian style or with a touch of Indian Spices. So those out there who like to get started with Indian cuisine, it’s a great break through. It definitely looks gourmet with all the toasted seeds going it them. He is not an Indian but is able to create a successful dish at the end which would go well with any main dish.
