DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
