Imli ki Chutney (Tamarind Dates Dip or Condiment)

Imli ki chutney is an interesting sweet-tangy sauce often used in Indian cuisine as a topping or garnish, key ingredient in various Indian snacks or street foods (chaat), and of course as a condiment or dip for samosas etc. This condiment may look gross to poeple who are unfamiliar with it but when you taste it, you will fall in love.

This was my first try and it turned out well. Thanks to Tarla Dalal.

1. 2 cups dates (khajur), pitted
2. Jaggery (Gur), 1 cup
3. Tamarind (imli), 1/2 cup
4. Salt, 1/4 tsp
5. Cumin seeds (optional)

1. Add all ingredients and water to a pot and simmer for 30 mins.
2. When cooled, liquify in a food processor.
3. Refrigerate and use.

This can be stored for a few weeks in the fridge.
