Sweet and Sour Tamarind Chutney


Like I mentioned in my previous post today's recipe is tamarind chutney .Whenever I go to my friend A's place, she always prepares some nice cripsy pakodas, or samosas or North Indian special snacks which I abosultely love, and she always used to serve them with her delicious tamarind chutney.Eventhough she shared the recipe with me long time back , the amount of sugar that goes in put me off from trying it,but later when I searched online for tamarind chutney's recipe I found the show me the curry's recipe which used jaggery so even before thinking twice I made this tamarind chutney,it didnt taste different from the chutney with sugar.So if there is any health consicious people out there, this might be little less guilt free one :)


Tamarind - 1/4 cup
Boiling water - 1 cup
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/8 cup
Cumin powder -1/8 tsp
Redchilly powder- 1/8 tsp
Garam masala- 1/8 tsp

1. Soak the tamarind in 1/2 cup of boling water and leave it for 30 minutes.Squeeze the pulp and seive .
2. Repeat the process one more time with remaining water and take out all the all the juice.
3.Add jaggery and boil it.When it starts to boil add the spices and simmer it till the chutney thicken slightly,check the sweetness and if it requires more sweetness add sugar and simmer it for few nore minutes.
