Sweet chutney for chaats

This is another chutney served with chaats or samosas. It is a sweet and sour combination mixed with some spices. Unlike green chutney, this sweet chutney is prepared with array of spices. As the process is bit time taking, I will prepare it in large quantities and freeze it.
Sweet tamarind chutney


Tamarind - fist full / 2 large lemons size
Dates - 8 - 10
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Aamchur / Dry mango powder - 1 tsp
Black salt - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp


Soak the tamarind. Squeeze well and remove the unwanted stuff.
Remove the seeds from the dates.
Soak the dates in 3 tbsp of hot water or boil them for 2-3 minutes until mushy.
Now pulse the dates and tamarind pulp along with the spices.
Remove it into a microwave bowl and add roughly 1 cup of water to it and bring it to boil.
It will take approximately 10 minutes to do.
Make sure to stir in between.
When the tamarind mixture gets cooked, it will become thick and consistent.

Serve it along with other chutneys for chaat
