Connections Reply by November 20
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:

Solving today’s Connections was actually relatively easy, as I was able to connect most of the words together with ease. However, I took a step back and started with the simplest one. After connecting all the primates, I found the Green category. The blue category came naturally because as an Indian I love all these chutneys except mango.
Then I next solved the Purple category, because mime and parrot were dead giveaways. Even though it was pretty clear by now, I had already made the Yellow connection in my head. So I combined those words and finally got my NYT Connections response for November 20th.
