    10 min

    This smooth Indian chutney is a delicious condiment. I like it best with Chaat Masala.

    i agree, the jaggery will bring out the date flavour! also a pinch of cummin and coriander powder each will make the chutney slightly aromatic yet give it a punch!  -  21 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was OK not great, but that's probably my fault because I couldn't find tamarind concentrate. The closest thing I could find was Mexican tamarindo juice, so I used a half cup of it and cut the water. It was tasty, just not awesome. I'd try it again but with proper ingredients next time.  -  10 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
