    Tamarind Date Chutney For Chaat / Sweet And Sour Chutney / Khatta Meetha Chutney


    Tamarind date chutney also well known as the Khatta Meetha Chutney is one of the main and essential ingredient of all chaat varieties available in India. It can also be had as dips and spreads for snacks like samosas. No one would ever say no to the tasty chaat varieties of Indian street side stalls. The main and secret ingredient that adds an excellent flavor to chaats like paani poori, channa chaat and bhel poori, is this tangy and sweet tasting chutney. Its so simple and easy to make but tastes too good and is a tongue tickling chutney with awesome flavors in it. There are many versions but I follow this simple preparation method that tastes just like the one you get in street side chaat stalls. Try it today its worth trying and am sure you will love it for sure.
