Chutney parcel please…

It all started with that one phrase. A phrase we would hear after every happy customer walked out of our restaurant. Tucked away in a quiet bylane of Belgaum, Annapurneshwari Thali restaurant has been serving traditional North Karnataka meals and snacks for years. What was our most popular item, you ask? The chutneys of course!  

Following the roaring demand for our chutneys, we started to keep extra packets of our shenga, putani, and other chutneys at the billing counter for customers to pick up at check out. The popularity soared, the packets ran out before we could refill them, and our chutneys became the staple in every house in Belgaum!

But something else happened. With globalization knocking on our doors and our sons and daughters moving far and wide for jobs, we realized how much people yearned for a taste of home, of familiarity, of comfort. Our chutney wasn’t just an accompaniment to a meal, it was a reminder of times spent among loved ones.

And that’s how Annapurneshwari chutneys were born. To give you joy and comfort in food, and to do so keeping your health and taste in mind. Our chutneys are made from the freshest of ingredients, sourced locally, and hand made with love, following the recipes that have been handed down over generations in our family. 

North Karnataka has followed a tradition of including a healthy amount of nuts and seeds in their diet. Our chutneys, made out of peanuts, flaxseed, niger seed, coconut, etc. are rich in healthy fats and nutrients. With the world recognizing the benefit of a low carb high-fat diet, it’s easy to see how our chutneys are 100% healthier than their closest relatives; the pickles.  Pickles with their high salt & oil content,  remain a staple on the dining table of most Indian households. Our mission is to replace that bottle of a pickle with a healthier alternative. And trust us, our chutneys make any dish taste better!

We invite you to try our chutneys and tell us what you think. At present we are available in Mumbai and Bangalore.
