July 09, 2013 Motions and Emotions 10 Comments

I have learnt many recipes since I came to this blogging world. I learn new dishes and try those at home and sometimes I modify them according to my family members taste buds. Today I will share a recipe which I have learnt from my co-blogger Sanoli (Sanoli's Kitchen). Me and my family really enjoyed this tamarind-date chutney. Here is the modified recipe to be served with rice or roti.

Tamarind-Dates Chutney to be served with Rice/ Roti (Tentul ar Khejurer Chatni/Imli Khajur Chutney )


1 Lemon Sized Ball of Tamarind (imli)
12-15 nos Dates, deseeded and chopped (khejur)

Dry Mango pulp - 1/2 cup, cut in to small pieces
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Seeds Powder (jeera)
3/4 tsp Fennel Seeds Powder (saunf)
1/2 tsp Black Salt
1/2 tsp Salt
Dry Red Chilli -2

Mustard Seeds - 1 teaspoon
Mustard oil


Soak tamarind in 1&1/2 cup warm water for 10 minutes. Now grind tamarind with dates to make a coarse paste. Heat oil in  a pan season with dry red chilli & mustard seeds, add tamarind-date mixture and sauté it . Add chilli powder, cumin seeds powder, fennel powder, black salt and regular salt in it. Add water and sugar into it. Keep stirring for 7-10 minutes in low heat. Add dry mango pulp pieces. Switch off the heat, chutney is ready now. Cool it and store it for few days in refrigerator. As I have cooked this in oil, it can be served with white rice or roti. Thank you Sanoli. Another chutney recipe is coming soon!!
