Dates And Tamarind Chutney For Chaat

This is the simple dates and tamarind chutney that we use in chaat recipes. This sweet and sour chutney is popularly known as the Imli and Kajur Chutney. I love this chutney in my sandwich and also I add these in my salads.

I prepared this recipe for my dahi bonda. You can find the green chutney with curry leaves here and here comes the sweet chutney.
