Kasundi

What is Kasundi ? It is a spicy and very savoury, tomato based condiment used to accompany curries and other such wintry dishes.

A couple of years back, when I added this product to our range, I envisaged it to be a popular winter condiment. It has turned out to be very versatile and popular all year round, with many of our customers enjoying it with a summer BBQ.

In the warmer months, I purchase box loads of beautiful quality, spray free tomatoes directly from a grower in Northern Victoria. One of the many things I love about my work, is the network of great people I work with. Small growers and producers are passionate, committed and largely unassuming folk. I am in awe of their extensive knowledge.

Recently, while heading back to Melbourne from an interstate event, I stopped to purchase such tomatoes. While I write this, an incredibly fragrant batch of Kasundi is simmering on the stove. After some unusually hot and humid weather, today really feels like an autumn day. I am thinking about Kasundi on sourdough toast with avocado for lunch. My kids love it on top of grilled cheese. It is also delicious with eggs on toast. Like all our products, it is also 'vegan friendly' and is a delicious addition to such dishes.

We've also enjoyed this in hamburgers and sandwiches as well as with all kids of roasts and grills. We don't do anything super spicy, but if you desire extra heat - just add a pinch of dried chilli flakes. This product is available at all our regular markets, and is also now available in our online store.

Time for that sourdough toast right now !
