Sweet (Tamarind) Chutney

In my recipe for Green Chutney I had mentioned a sweet Tamarind-based chutney as well that is usually served with Indian snacks. Here's the recipe for it......

                                                       SWEET (TAMARIND) CHUTNEY

Ingredients :

De-seeded dates
Tamarind paste - 2 to 3 tbsps
Jaggery - 1/2 cup (You can reduce this if you don't want it too sweet)
Red Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Jeera (Cumin seeds) powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Method :

1. Combine chopped dates, tamarind paste and jaggery and pressure cook along with 1 cup water, up to 2 to 3 whistles. Alternately, you can also use a saucepan and cook till dates become soft. Let cool.

2. Blend to a smooth paste. Strain this into a bowl to remove any lumps and/or impurities.

3. Add water to adjust consistency as required and mix well. Now add the chilli powder, jeera powder, pinch salt and mix again.
Serve as desired.
