Date Tamarind Chutney is a sweet and tangy Indian condiment served with snacks, appetizers or with chaat dishes. It is extremely easy to make on stove top or Instant Pot. A vegan, gluten-free and freezer friendly recipe.
Add the dates and tamarind with 2 cup of water.
Bring to a boil and keep simmering until the dates and tamarind are soft.
Once the mixture is soft, switch off the heat, add the jaggery and mix to dissolve.
Then add the red chilli powder, roasted cumin seeds powder, black salt, ginger powder, salt and pepper. Give it a good mix. Allow to cool. Grind to smooth paste and strain (optional). Use or store in airtight container and refrigerate or freeze.
This sweet chutney can be stored in refrigerator for days or make it in bulk and freeze it for up to 6 months.
I love freezing it in 4 oz mason jars. Other option is to freeze in ice-cube trays.
To thaw, just place one jar (or cubes as many needed) in refrigerator overnight.
