Khajur Imli Ki Chutney or the Date Tamarind Chutney is a sweet and sour tangy chutney made from dates tamarind and jaggery.It is an essential component in Chaats like Pani Puri, Bhel Puri, Samosa and more. Topping this chutney for chaats is an absolute must to have the best chaat experience.
To make the Date Tamarind Chutney we pressure cooked the dates, tamarind and jaggery together along with some water and then blended it to make a coarse chutney with the help of a hand blender. We then added all the spices which are used to elevate the flavours of the tamarind chutney like the chili powder, cumin powder, black salt and ginger powder into the pressure cooker and simmered the chutney till it reached the right consistency. The pressure cooker method reduces the cooking time to a great extent and also helps you make the Date Tamarind Chutney in one pot.
I personally like to not puree my Date and Tamarind Chutney. I like my chutney to be chunky. To savor it the way I like, once all the ingredients are simmered well and cooled, refrigerate the Date and Tamarind Chutney and serve as desired.
