Tamarind Chutney

Tamarind dates chutney is a sweet and tangy chutney commonly used in chaats and as a dip for many indian snacks.

Recipe for Tamarind Date Chutney

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time:10 minutes (optional)
Serves: 8-10


  • Tamarind - 100 gms
  • Dates (pitted) - 100 gms
  • Jaggery - 100 gms


  1. Soak the tamarind and dates in little warm water for 15-20 minutes till it becomes soft. You can put it in the microwave for a minute or boil it to speed up the process.
  2. Grind this with jaggery to a fine paste. This can be done as such if the jaggery is of good quality. If not, follow the next few steps.
  3. In a pan, take equal quantities of dates, tamarind, jaggery and water. Cook for 8-10 minutes until jaggery is dissolved and the mixture becomes slightly thick.
  4. Most of the time I do not add ant spices since I add it while making the chaat. If needed, you can add 1/2 tsp each of red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder. Cook for 2 minutes more.
  5. Cool it down. Grind the mixture in mixer till smooth and strain it.
  6. Pass it through a seive to get a smooth puree. The chutney is ready to be served. It can be stored in the fridge for up to a month. 


  • You can use sugar instead of jaggery and dates too.
