What is Kasundi?
Kasundi is a Bengali mustard sauce which is made by fermenting the mustard seeds. It has a highly pungent and sharp flavour. Just like a pickle/achaar or a wasabi sauce has a unique intense flavour, the same way kasundi also has a distinctive taste.
How to use it?
This Bengali mustard sauce can be of various types, some can have a mild flavour and some can be really strong. It depends on the brand you are using. So before adding it to the matar, taste it and use it according to your liking.
