This is an important chutney while preparing chat. The taste of this chutney is a mixture of sweet, hot, sour and salty. This is very easy to prepare. I wrote down this recipe years back after watching a tv cookery show by the famous cook Chellam. This recipe never fails.
Red chilly powder-1/2tsp
Garam masala powder-1/2tsp
Tamarind- lemon sized ball
1. Mix dates, raisins and cumin seeds in 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
2. Keep flame low and let it cook. Meanwhile add the tamarind extract to the dates mixture.
3. Add red chilly powder, salt, garam masala and grated jaggery and allow it to cook till the raw smeel is gone.
4. Let it cool. Grind it to a fine paste.
5. Sweet chutney is ready.
