I love this stuff at indian restaurants; it is usually served as a dipping sauce for samosas. So I decided, to buy some from an indian store to serve with homemade samosa. I bought this brand from India called QUALTY that says on the package chutney for samosa and pakora made from tamarind, date and spices. It is absolutely vile. It has an off smell and has a weird aftertaste. As far as I can tell it is not past its due date. I noticed that one of the ingredients is tartaric acid. Could this be the reason for the offending taste and smell?
Do you recommend other brands or will I run into the same problem?
