Dates and Tamarind Chutney


Chutneys work as a taste enhancer. Usually, tamarind chutney is used in various chaats. Adding Dates makes a healthier option, as well as less sweetening agent, is required. I had made this chutney considering the health benefit and had not added sugar, instead used gudh(jaggery).


1/2 cup soaked dates

1/2 cup jaggery

1/4 cup tamarind pulp

1 cup of water

1 tsp ginger powder

1 tsp cumin powder

1tsp salt

1tsp red chili powder



  • Make a paste of dates and tamarind. I used ready tamarind pulp.
  • In a saucepan sieve, in this paste add jaggery, ginger powder, cumin powder, salt, chili powder.
  • Add water and cook till it reduces and thickens.
  • Let it cool.
  • It lasts for a month if stored in a glass jar and refrigerates.
