Tamarind Date Chutney



Soak tamarind in 2 cups of water for ten minutes. Squeeze well and strain out the juice. Soak the dates in one cup of hot water for 5 minutes and grind into a fine paste when cold. Powder the kalonji,mustard seeds, sonf, cummin seeds and methi seeds coarsely. Keep aside. Heat oil in a pan and add the powdered ingredients. When it splutters, pour in the tamarind water, jaggery, salt, chilli powder and the sonf powder. Boil till the raw smell of tamarind disappears. Add the ground dates and boil till the chutney becomes thick. Cool and serve with samosas, dahiwadas or any other snack. Can also be used as a sandwich spread. If too sweet jaggery can be omitted.
