What is Tamarind Chutney?

Tamarind chutney is a sauce made using seedless tamarind and jaggery. This simple sauce is sweet as well as tangy and is flavoured with lots of spices such as roasted cumin seeds powder, garam masala powder, black pepper powder, black salt etc. Tamarind chutney is indispensable for chaats and snacks such as samosa etc.

Let’s talk about the Ingredients for Tamarind Chutney

seedless tamarind: seedless tamarind is easily available in the stores. As such even tamarind pulp is easily available which could fasten the process but I like to use tamarind for making this chutney. Tamarind needs to be soaked in enough warm water.
jaggery: tamarind makes this chutney tangy and jaggery makes it sweet. the quantity of jaggery can be adjusted as per taste. This recipe will give you a sweeter chutney.
other spices: tamarind is flavoured with roasted cumin seeds powder, red chili powder, and many more spices and each spice compliments chutney very well.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
