How to make Indian Khajur Imli Chutney:
  • Check for seeds in dates and tamarind. Soak both separately in water for about an hour. 
  • Grind soaked dates, soaked tamarind, roughly diced ginger, cumin, coriander seeds, dry red chilies 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.
  • Add jaggery or brown sugar while grinding the chutney if required. I did not add sugar.
Serve Khajur Chutney with Samosas, Pakodas, Cutlets.
