Just let me tell you one thing real quick. A big jar of sweet and sour, thick and pulpy dates tamarind sweet chutney is already stocked in my refrigerator which anticipates upcoming chaat days in a row. It’s so exciting and food fest kind of scenario here. This is not a rare thing, the WINTER weather, the kids mid term vacation and chaat craving self insist me towards all the home made chaat stuff. You know it all, home made chaat isn’t a quick task, you have to assemble too many things like the puffed puri, sweet chutney, spicy mint chutney, nylon sev, boiled potato, sprouted legume and the list goes on and on. Each and everything whipped up in my own kitchen not all at a time though.
The firing spicy green chutney in all chaats brings tears in to your ears where as the dates tamarind sweet chutney masks off the spicy-ness with it’s natural sweetness. I love this natural sweetness thing because it has Dates and very less of jaggery.
My son who hates eating spice but great lover of chaats had his portion of puri with this Dates tamarind sweet chutney and nylon sev alone. He indulged himself in spice-less pani puri , dollop of sweet chutney topping generously with plain sev.
