Announcing Condiment Mela

Sharing is caring!

After the Sandwich Mela, I surely wanted a different one to host. My thoughts went back to the time I wanted to do one on Condiments. I was thinking for a long time if the name really rhymed. Then thought name really doesn’t matter, what matters most is what dishes that one is going to make.

Condiments are one of those indispensable items in a meal. It plays a vital role in all the cuisines and coming to Indian Cuisine, the list is endless. The countless chutneys, pickles, sauces and some more that can be found in Indian cuisine is just too many to select from.

According to wiki, a condiment is sauce or seasoning added to food to impart a particular flavor or, in some cultures, to complement the dish. They may also be dry, such as a mixture of herbs and seasonings. Many condiments are available packaged in single-serving packets (sachets), like mustard or ketchup, particularly when supplied with take-out or fast food meals. Condiments are usually applied by the diner. Condiments are sometimes added prior to serving, for example a sandwich made with ketchup or mustard. Some condiments are used during cooking to add flavor or texture to the food; barbecue sauce, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, marmite are examples.

And in the Indian cuisines, you have the Chutneys, Sauces, Pickles, Papads to choose from. The list is actually endless!

So from now till September 20th 2011, post any dish that can be falling under Condiment on your blog. It can be sweet or savory. The dish can be of any cuisine, both Veg and Non Veg accepted.
