    1. 1
      Place the sugar, dates and water in a saucepan over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil and simmer for about 7-8 minutes, until the dates are very soft.
    3. 3
      Stir in the tamarind.
    4. 4
      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).
    5. 5
      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).
    6. 6
      Stir in the spices and salt.
    7. 7
      Taste for seasoning: the chutney should be equal parts sweet, salty and sour.
    8. 8
      Add more tamarind, sugar or salt if any of these needs a boost.
    9. 9
      Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
