Meet Vanita & Virendra who are the toast of Model Town. Rasika, the vivacious newly-married girl into their social circle, flirts with the suave, successful Virendra. The plain, naive, small-town wife, Vanita invites her over to share her recipes and kitchen secrets. And, with them, the secrets that lie beneath calm faces and ordinary exteriors ooze out, as well.

Chutney is about the tiny Chutneys- inside each of our lives. Chutneys in our families & the Chutneys we make, in the whole world.
