Benefits of Tamarind

Date and Tamarind Chutney

This one of my favourite dipping sauces. Sweet and sour in flavour this condiment usually accompanies samosas, cassava chips and many types of 'chaat'. You can adjust the amount of dates, tamarind and jaggery to make it as sweet or sour as you like. Think of it as the Indian version of a ketchup.
