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,
