Chaat Chutneys / Green Chutney & Dates Tamarind Chutney

Today's recipe simple and easy to make chaat chutneys which is one of the main and common ingredient in most of the chaat recipes like Bhel puri, samosa chaat, paani puri, Dahi puri, aloo patties, cutlet chaat and the list goes on. Dunno why I did not post any chaat recipes here except the Papdi chaat that too a fusion - South Indian popular street food - Thattai set with North Indian chaat chutneys, a must try snack. Next time you make papdi or buy papdi don't forget to try this refreshing and yummy snack.
 Chaats are my most favorite snack and I love all kind of chaat foods. Chaats are tongue tickling, refreshing and filling snack. It makes me more happy and have no words to describe my love for chaats. I often make them but I don't have patience to click and instead will finish the prepared chaat in no time. So I did not post any recipes so far and now Vardhini's event pulled me to make and share some recipes here. Thank You Vardhini :) So friends & readers keep watching for more chaat recipes to follow.

  • Cook Tamarind and dates in a pressure cooker or in open vessel until it is soft n mushy.
  • Then cool and grind it in a blender and filter the tamarind-dates mixer and keep aside.
  • In a sauce pan, add 2 tsp water and add the powdered jaggery and cook till dissolve and when it starts boiling add the tamarind dates extract ,little water and stir well .
  • Now add chilli powder, cumin powder, black salt and allow to boil for 2 min.
  • That's it..Dates Tamarind chutney is ready. You can store this chutney in refrigerator for even a month.
