Mithi Sonth is a sweet and tangy chutney made with dried ginger powder, tamarind, and jaggery. It's a popular accompaniment in Indian cuisine, often served with snacks like samosas, pakoras, or chaat. Here's a basic recipe for Roopak's Mithi Sonth:


  • 1 Cup seedless tamarind
  • 1 Cup jaggery (grated or chopped)
  • 1 Tablespoon dried ginger powder (saunth)
  • 1 Teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  • 1 Teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon black salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dry mango powder (amchur)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 2 Cups water
  • Optional: Pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • Optional: Pinch of garam masala


  • Start by soaking the tamarind in 2 cups of warm water for about 30 minutes. After soaking, squeeze and extract the pulp from the tamarind, discard the seeds and fibers, and keep the pulp aside.
  • In a saucepan, add the tamarind pulp and jaggery. Cook on medium heat until the jaggery dissolves completely, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the jaggery has dissolved, add the dried ginger powder, roasted cumin powder, red chili powder, black salt, dry mango powder, regular salt, and optional asafoetida.
  • Mix well and let it simmer on low heat for about 15-20 minutes, or until the chutney thickens to a desired consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer a smoother consistency, you can strain the chutney through a fine mesh sieve to remove any remaining solids.
  • Once the chutney reaches the desired consistency, turn off the heat and let it cool down completely.
  • Store the Mithi Sonth in clean, airtight containers in the refrigerator. It can be stored for several weeks.
