Perfect dipping sauce for Samosas.
Make and share this Tamarind - Date Chutney recipe from Food.com.
- Place the sugar, dates and water in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Bring to a boil and simmer for about 7-8 minutes, until the dates are very soft.
- Stir in the tamarind.
- Very carefully, pour the ingredients into a blender, clamp the lid down tight and blend until smooth (or blend in the pot with an immersion/stick blender).
- Return the mixture to the pot and boil until thick enough to thinly coat the back of a spoon (the chutney will thicken more as it cools).
- Stir in the spices and salt.
- Taste for seasoning: the chutney should be equal parts sweet, salty and sour.
- Add more tamarind, sugar or salt if any of these needs a boost.
- Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
