A Restaurant’s Take

Mint chutney at Tamarind Bay

At the Harvard Square Indian favorite, the herb comes with heat.

At Tamarind Bay in Harvard Square, saag aloo tikki, an appetizer of crispy little spinach-potato cakes, comes with a smooth mint chutney that has quite the spicy kick. Enjoy the heat as long as you can, then seek relief with a dab of the sweet, tangy tamarind sauce that’s also served with the dish.

TAMARIND BAY 75 Winthrop Street, Cambridge, 617-491-4552,
