    Sweet and Tangy Tamarind Chutney

    Tamarind paste 1.5 tbsp
    Pitted Plum 1/2 cup
    Jaggery 1 tbsp
    Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
    Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp

    Method of Preparation

    1. Heat a little water in a pan and add the pitted plum. Pitted plum - you might ask. Usually dates are used. I did not have any and decided to experiment with this. It worked out great for me. If you have dates feel free to use that instead.

    2. Add tamarind paste and jaggery. Also add in the chilli powder, cumin powder and salt. Mix well.

    3. Boil for a few minutes till the plum (dates) get cooked.

    4. Cool and make into a fine paste. Add a little bit more water if needed.
