Matouk's Kuchela Trinidad

Matouk’s Kuchela

Chutney, kuchela and amchar are some of the most popular condiments in Trinidad and Tobago.  Have you seen all the choices in the supermarket?

Check out our pictures on Facebook of what’s at the supermarket and options from local food artisans like CRATE FOODS and SUMPTUOUSLY ORGASMIC CHUTNEY.

For those who make their chutney and kuchela at home, here’s our roundup of some of the best recipes:

  • Mango Kuchela (Simply Trini Cooking) – “The star of the show this time is not the famous curry but amchar masala better known as black masala.”
  • Tamarind Chutney (Good Food Channel) – “Tangy tamarind chutney makes a zingy accompaniment to grilled fish and chicken from Gary Rhodes and Fazil Bacchus.”
  • Taste of the Caribbean: Kuchela Adds True Trini Flavor to Almost Anything (Uncommon Caribbean) – “Spices were amped up, bringing out more of the salty and sour elements, while the fruit flavor was toned-down. The result was a new and uniquely Trinidadian chutney called kuchela.”
