Meetha Chutney/ Khajur Imli Ki Chuteny

Meetha Chutney/ Khajur Imli ki Chutney is used in almost all kind of Chaats like Chole Tikki Chaat, Pani Puri etc. It is made with dates, tamarind and various spices.
Here is what we need:
Sweet Chutney :
Ingredients:
1 cup deseeded dates
½ cup deseeded tamarind
½  cup grated jaggery
½  tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera) powder
Salt to taste/ Black salt to taste

                 This is a picture of diluted Chutney
Method
  1. Wash the dates and tamarind and put them in a pressure cooker.
  2. Add the jaggery and 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  3. Allow the steam to escape and then blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
  4. Strain the mixture through a sieve.
  5. Add 1½ cups of water, chilli powder, cumin seeds powder and salt and mix well till you see no lumps.
  6. This yields about 2 small jars of chutney, I dilute this as required when I use it for chaats.
  7. Refrigerate and use as required.
Note:
I have used only half cup of tamarind as I did not want the chutney to be a too much tangy as the tamarind I used was too sour. If tamarind isn’t sour you can use 1 cup of seedless tamarind.
Happy Cooking,
