A simple khatta-meeta(tangy yet sweet) chutney that is best used while making all the different kinds of chaat. Adding the dates instead of plain sugar or jaggery adds the best detail in the chutney.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Tamarind Paste: 2 teaspoons
Chili Powder / Dried chilli powder : 1 teaspoon/ 1-2
Sugar: a pinch
Salt: a pinch
Water : 2 tablespoons
De-seed the dates and put them in a bowl with the water. Microwave it for 1 and half mins. Mix in the tamarind pulp and rest of the ingredients. Mix and grind it all into a fine smooth paste. You could add a little more water to slightly dilute if you think the consistency is little thick. Adjust the salt.
Tamarind chutney is ready.
