    1. 1
      Place the jaggery, dates and water in a deep boiling pan for about 2 hours.
    2. 2
      After the dates become smooth, blend in a mixer till smooth.
    3. 3
      Strain and transfer to the pan again.
    4. 4
      Add the tamarind paste and seasoning.
    5. 5
      Boil till thick enough to coat the back of a spoon thinly.
    6. 6
      Cool again. Store in clean airtight bottles and refrigerate.
    7. 7
      Shelf life of about a month in the refrigerator.
    8. 8
      * Here, I have used tamarind paste. But in case you do not have tamarind, soak the tamarind in water and extract its paste.
    9. 9
      What I usually do is use dry tamarind powder which I get from Indian grocery stores.

      This is a real winner in my book!<br/>I left the lid off the date concoction for cook time of two hours. I wasn't sure whether to keep lid on or off. A lot of the water evaporated so I ended up having to add water because it was very thick.<br/>The flavor after a night in the word: WOW. <br/>I made this chutney along with Cilantro Mint chutney to go with Samosas and Chickpea Fritters.<br/><br/>This Tamarind-Date Chutney would be good just to have a staple in the fridge. I can see it going well with a lot of things. It's almost like jam only way better with it's sweet and sourish plum like tang! <br/>It makes a pretty big batch, too.

      Wonderful and delicious in every way. It was absolutely perfect with the Indian Samosa's #15348. I actually didn't have any tamarind paste, but I was able to get a package of tamarind pods. I have never used these before, but I soaked them in water as suggested and scraped the paste off of the seeds after they softened. I ended up with only half the amount that the recipe called for, but it still turned out great. Thanks for posting this recipe.
