Dry Mango and Dates Chutney ~ Amchoor aur Pindkhajur ki Chutney

Chutneys are an integral part of Chaat/Indian Street Food.  Tamarind or Dry mango chutney is a must condiment for any chaat snack it adds the extra punch to many recipesIMG_0780-1 bm

Though you can buy it at an indian food store, making this at a home is simple and easy, also it is much more economical, super easy, without any added preservatives and homemade chutney tastes much better than the store-bought ones!  If you make chaats more often, just like me, you can prepare these chutneys and store them in the freezer.  It will definitely save some time.IMG_0806-1 bm
