Sweet & Sour Chutney (sauce)

Little sweet with right mix tanginess makes this chutney so very delicious. And you use the healthy option as sweetner that is jaggery instead of sugar. Goes well with snacks and with meals too! 🙂

Tamarind – 1 lemon sized  (soak in lot of water)

Jaggery – 5 Tbsp (powdered)

Dried ginger powder – 1/2 tsp

Chilli powder – 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste

Cinnamon powder – 1 pinch (optional)

Clove powder – 1 pinch (optional)

  1. Remove the seeds from tamarind and squeeze out well to get thick pulp
  2. Heat a pan and add the tamarind pulp and add more water to it. Leave it to boil
  3. Add jaggery, stir and bring to a boil
  4. Add ginger powder, chili powder abd slat and keep stirring till consistency of the chutney turns thicker
  5. Add Cinnamon and Clove powder if required
  6. Your chutney is ready to serve 🙂

Till tomorrow….happy cooking!
