Khajur ki Chutney/Date Chutney
My mother always had a big jar in the fridge for snacks and chaat. I do not remember ever running out of sweet chutney at home. It is one of the many chutneys we make at home. There are lots of versions to make this chutney. Sometimes people add tamarind too to give it a sour taste. I like this version as it super easy to make and healthy too.
Topping of this chutney is an absolute must to have the best chaat experience.
1 cup dates (deseeded)
2 tablespoon sugar(powdered)
1 teaspoon black salt
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
Soak the dates in water for about 2-3 hours. This will make the dates soft. Grind the dates in the grinder into a fine paste. Strain the paste.
Empty the paste in a pan and add the powdered sugar, black salt, cumin powder, salt and black pepper. Add little water if required and heat the chutney for about 2 minutes. Switch off the heat and let it cool.
Store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
