Dear Foreros,

In the brotherly languages above how would you refer to a condiment that has found its way on tables aplenty?

My attempt: Mirch/ii-lahsun Sauce? Chutney would sound rather odd as chutney is a certain type of sauce akin to a relish. Thence why other languages like Arabic resort to the Spanish Salsa. There is no precedent for us to turn to Spanish thence unless we borrow Salsa from English, Sauce would do but how would you frame it?

Please no transliterations of the existing verbatim English term. It is a known that any English technical term can be loaned into Urdu and Hindi.

I eagerly await your responses
