Sweet Tamarind Chutney Recipe with step by step photos – This Easy Tamarind Dates Chutney Recipe is what I have been making very often and regularly. I learnt this khajur imli chutney whilst my Home Science classes and have been following this recipe since then.

This sweet chutney can be had for making chaat items like pani puri, bhel puri, sev puri, aloo tikki and even samosa or pakoras. Its a one stop chutney recipe solution for all your chaat and fried savory snacks.

This tamarind chutney recipe yields about 1.5 cup of chutney. Make it and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Stays good for about 15-20 days.

If you don’t have dates then there is another variation of this chutney made only with tamarind and dry ginger powder. this variation of the tamarind chutney is called as imli ki chutney or saunth chutney in north india. this chutney is also used while serving samosa, pakora and with popular chaat snacks.
