Saunth (or sooth), is a sweet chutney used in Indian chaats. It is made from dried ginger (sooth) and tamarind (or imli) paste, hence the name.[1] The chutney is brownish-red in colour.

Modern sooth is often made with dates. However, sooth made with dried ginger adds a special flavour to the chaat and is preferred in most parts of North India.
