Of Flavours & Tastes…
Here I am with a chutney for you.Khajoor and Kishmish chutney can be awesome as a side dish especially when you are having a spicy dish or biryani..The subtle sweet and sour flavour of the chutney makes it unique.
1/2 cup dates/khajoor, de seeded and cut into strips
1/4 cup raisins,washed & soaked in hot water (30 minutes)
1 big lemon sized tamarind
1/2 cup grated jaggery
1 cup water
1/2 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder (sonth)
Soak the tamarind and jaggery in one cup of water for 30 minutes.Mash the tamarind well and bring this to a boil.Now strain the mixture and keep the juice.Add chilly powder,cumin powder,ginger powder and salt to this juice and mix well.Boil this again to remove the raw smell of powders. Switch off the stove and add the date strips and soaked raisins.Mix well.Keep it for at least one hour before serving.
