We've been trying quite a few Trader Joe's items lately, and discovered tonight that their vegetable samosas are fantastic! For dipping, we had mango chutney and a cilantro dipping sauce I made.
In the past, we've always purchased samosas dipping sauces from an Indian grocery store. This time, I looked to the internet for a dipping sauce recipe and found that cilantro sauces are traditional accompaniements to Indian samosas.
Chris and I both loved the cilantro sauce that I made tonight, and the mango chutney was also great with the samosas. The cilantro sauce is really easy to make, and has a great complex flavor. I should point out that cilantro is not my favorite, but I still really liked this dipping sauce.
