Dates tamarind honey dip/Spread
Tamarind dates spread is tangy and sweet, which is can be used in chaats, samosas etc., A chaat is incomplete without this spread to spruce it up. This chutney is healthy considering the ingredients and I replaced jaggary with honey. Though it is available in the supermarket in bottled form but homemade is economical and healthy without any added preservatives.
Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 10mins
- Seedless tamarind-1/2cup
- Deseeded and chopped dates-1/2cup
- Cumin powder-1/2tsp
- Dry ginger powder-1/2tsp
- Black salt/rock salt- 1/2tsp
- Soak tamarind and dates in 1cup water for 2-3hours.
- Add the soaked dates and tamarind in the blender/food processor and blend it to smooth paste.
- Now transfer the ground paste to the non-stick pan and cook on medium high flame for 3-4minutes.
- Add dry spices, cumin powder, black salt, dry ginger powder and simmer for 4-5minutes more.
- Turn off the flame ( strain through the strainer to remove the pulp )
- Add honey (More quantity can be added if you love more sweet in your dip)
- Allow it to cool down
Store in the airtight container in the refrigerator and use it when required.
- Spices can be personalised.
- If you prefer more sweet go ahead and add extra honey .
- Consistency can be altered by adding extra water while cooking.
