This is a perfect accompaniment for any kind of dish. Jaggery and dates make it a healthy side dish. A very easy to make and yummy chutney.
  • 1 cup dates (seeds removed)
  • 2 tbsp. tamarind (seeds removed)
  • ½ cup jaggery (small pieces)
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • Salt to taste
  1. Use seedless dates or you can remove seeds from the dates before using.
  2. Take out tamarind and remove seeds. Take tamarind paste or extract.
  3. Put them both in a pressure cooker.
  4. Now add the jaggery and almost 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  5. Open the cooker after steams escape and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
  6. Strain the mixture and add 1 cups of water, chili powder, cumin powder, salt and mix well.
  7. Refrigerate and use whenever required.
You can increase or decrease the tamarind or jaggery quantity on how sweet or tangy you want the chutney to be.

Dates are also sweet so too much jaggery can make the chutney sweeter. I like it little tangy so I increase my tamarind quantity while making it.
