1. Check for seeds in dates and tamarind.  Soak both separately in water for about an hour. 
2. Grind soaked dates, soaked tamarind, roughly diced ginger, cumin, coriander seeds, dry red chillies and Kala namak to a fine chutney.  About 1 - 2 cups water will be needed.  Add more if required.  Add Kala Namak to suit your taste.
3. Add jaggery or brown sugar while grinding the chutney if required.  I did not add sugar.
