Sweet (Tamarind) Chutney

Sweet Chutney is used for all the North Indian Chats. I always have sweet and green chutney in the refrigerator for on demand chat preparation. If made with less water and stored in air tight container, the chutney stays good for 2 weeks.


1 cup pitted dates
Tamarind – small lemon sized
2 tbsps jaggery
½ tsp red chilli powder
½ tsp chat masala
Black salt (according to taste)
Water for needed consistency

  1. Soak tamarind in water for 10 minutes.
  2. Grind all the ingredients together adding water to a needed consistency.
Note: Tamarind paste can also be used. But it tends to change the color of Chutney. For easier grinding, put all the ingredients together (incl. water), heat in microwave for a minute. Leave it for 15 minutes.
