SWEET TAMARIND (KHEJUR - IMLI) CHUTNEY

This truelly scrumptious accompaniment is flavoured by red chilli powder, fennel powder, cumin powder, chaat masala and black salt. It is an exotic sweet and sour chutney using dates and tamarind. This toothsome chutney can be had for making chaat items or serve on the side of a snack.

INGREDIENTS:
1 Large Lemon Sized Ball of Tamarind (imli)
15 nos Dates, deseeded and chopped (khejur)
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Seeds Powder (jeera)
3/4 tsp Fennel Seeds Powder (saunf)
1 tsp Chaat Masala
1/2 tsp Black Salt
1/2 tsp Salt
Water as required

METHOD:
Soak tamarind in 1&1/2 cup warm water for 10 mins. Squeeze tamarind for getting pulp and sieve the juice of tamarind.

Grind tamarind with dates to make a coarse paste. Heat a sauce pan, add tamarind-date mixture along with tamarind juice and bring it to a boil. 

Add sugar, chilli powder, cumin seeds powder, fennel powder, chaat masala, black salt and regular salt in it. Keep stirring for 4-5 minutes in low heat. Switch off the heat, chutney is ready now. 

Let it cool and store in refrigerator for few weeks. Serve with any yummy chaat item or snacks. Yummy!!!
