"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 fridge...one 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."
"wow its delicious"
"How delicious this is! I made it as a component of the dressing for Sana's Fruit Chaat, but I am so grateful that I have a jar of it for other uses. It is rich and thick and sweet without being cloying and, as a bonus, is very low in calories and has hardly any fat. Plus, your house will smell wonderful while it is cooking."
"Thank you for posting this recipe. I had this at a friends place with samosas and loved it! Now I have the recipe! I made this a couple of days ago and it turned out better than hers. "
