Kasundi is generally used in Bengali as a type of mustard sauce. It's a pungent paste of fermented mustard seeds, spices and sometimes dried fruits and olives, popular as a dipping sauce. We created a not-so-authentic version that's a touch more friendly than home fermentation, thanks to the help of your Thermomix. Try this on anything that you'd like to make less pedestrian, think sandwiches and soups, to dress up eggs or dip meat into.
