Sweet & Spicy Tamarind Chutney

Tamarind Chutney

One of my favourites as this goes with any of our Indian snacks, great with Pindi Chole or on top of chaats. It's such a useful chutney to have in the fridge. 


  • 1 cup Tamarind 
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin powder 
  • 2 tsp roasted coriander powder 
  • 1 tsp coriander powder 
  • 1/2 tsp black salt 
  • Salt to taste 
  • 1 tsp kadhmiri red chilli powder 
  • 1 tsp coarsely ground dry red chillies 
  • 1 tsp black pepper 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of dry ginger grated 
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup sugar or jaggery 

  • Strain the Tamarind and put the pulp in a pan .
  • Add all of the above ingredients to the Tamarind pulp 
  • Cook on full flame keep stirring 
  • When it starts bubbling lower the flame and cook till it becomes little thick .
  • Keep it a little thinner than the desired consistency as it will become thicker when it cools down .
