DIRECTIONS

  • Using your hands break the block of Tamarind down into smaller pieces first.
  • Soak the tamarind in the hot water for 20 minutes.
  • Once softened, strain the mixture through a fine sieve and discard the husks and seeds.
  • Place a frying pan over a medium heat and add the cumin and coriander seeds. Dry roast them for a minute, then tip the spices into a bowl.
  • Place the chilli powder, salt, jaggery or sugar and dates into a blender. Add the roasted cumin and coriander seeds and 2 tablespoons of water and blend to a fine puree.
  • Scrape the puree into a bowl and mix in the tamarind extract.
  • Stir well and add a little water if you think the chutney is too thick (it should have a thin pouring consistency).
  • Cool completely, store in the fridge and eat within 3 days.
