Date and Tamarind Chutney

Sweet, tangy and oh so spicy! This is the perfect go-to store cupboard chutney that can be prepared in advance and served alongside your curries to add many layers of awesomeness.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 3 cups water
  • 1⁄4 cup tamarind paste
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1⁄2 cup jaggery or soft brown sugar.
  • 1 tsp salt

METHOD

  1. Add the dates, water, tamarind paste, chilli powder, ground cumin and ground ginger to a large pot and bring to the boil.
  2. Turn the heat to medium and simmer the mix for 45 minutes, until the dates have softened and are mushy.
  3. Blend the mix to a smooth paste and add back to the pot.
  4. Add the jaggery and salt, and simmer for a further 15-20 minutes until the chutney turns glossy, and has thickened to a honey-like consistency.
  5. Strain the mix, pressing to get all the liquid out before bottling.
  6. Bottle the chutney and put a lid on immediately. This helps to create a seal.
  7. The chutney can be kept unopened for up to 6 months. Once opened, it should be stored in the fridge and used within 3 months.
