After launching a new fan-favourite non-hot sauce product (Crispy Chilli Oil), India’s hottest chilli flakes (Fire Flakes) and a spice blend for beverages and bakes (Pumpkin Spice), we wanted to come back to our hot sauce roots with our next new product, and our desi hearts couldn’t resist the urge to put our twist on an Indian classic that’s more than survived, it’s thrived, in the last 50+ years.
For over 50 years the the ’65’ has slowly changed it’s face from cult classic to national treasure. Once just a local legend through word of mouth, with its humble beginnings allegedly at the Buhari Hotel in Tamil Nadu in 1965, it is now a flavour known, loved and remixed all over India at eateries big and small – fancy and simple alike. Back in 1965, the Buhari Hotel in Tamil Nadu created a dish they called simply ‘Chicken 65’. And so the obsession began. It’s distinct flavours have middle-of-the-road appeal to Indians nationwide despite their diverse tastes palates – that fact has always made this dish special.
Meanwhile in 2022, having spent their school years in Tamil Nadu, our co-founders Mikhel & Kshitij both had fond memories and nostalgia for the ’65’ flavour. We turned their taste of nostalgia into something edible.
So being us and nerding out over food the way we do, we decided to make it easier for you to dip/drizzle your food and sink your teeth into this special hot sauce. We’ve used Karnataka’s beloved byadgi chilli here and you’ll see (well, taste) the benefits of using such a well-rounded chilli almost immediately!
Perfect for: Everyone in the family! This sauce is loaded with flavour, not very spicy at all and pairs superbly with a wide variety of things – chicken, potatoes, cauliflower, paneer, you name it!
