tamarind chutney sauce /sweetchutneyforchaats
Chaats would have been a failure snack if these sauces/chutneys are not there!they are so inevitable that they make the snack more expressive and complete.In special chaat houses even road side shops here serve hot samosas with tangy sweet tamarind chutney and tomato sauce,but I always have a great craving for tamarind chutney sauce andSamosa combination as extremely daunting.Method of making tamarind chutney differs from place to place,usually I make it with jaggery but this time I have added sugar to make this chutney.Dates added to this sauce gives a special sweetness and a special load to this khatta meeta chutney.I have tamarind paste recipe in my blog you can very well use tamarind paste instead of soaking tamarind and squeezing,it makes the job even more easier.This chutney has more shelf life when stored in clean containers mainly when stored in the freezer it will sit well for months together.
