No one at Chutney’s is afraid of heat, salt, or spices. At this Indian fast-food spot in The Garage in Harvard Square, and in The Longwood Galleria, you order a main course and choose how to eat it — rolled as a paratha, tucked inside nan and heated as a “nanini,” or served in a bowl.
Think of Chutney’s, which is well suited as a food court option, as an Indian Chipotle’s. Owner Sanjay Kansagra, a former software engineer, explains that the original concept for the places (Longwood is almost a year old; Harvard Square has been open 2½ years) is based on a North Indian wrap called kati (also kathi). The original version is a wrap of meat, onions, and lime.
