Imli Ki Chutney

Imli (Tamarind) ki Chutney is the one-stop chutney for any Indian dish ever. Its lip-smacking blend of sweet and tangy flavours makes it a good partner in crime to savoury dishes. This Indian ketchup is made by combining jiggery (gud) and spices with tamarind (imli) pulp. My secret weapon that I have used here is black salt (kala namak). Its salty flavour ensures the correct balance of sour and sweetness in the chutney. Although sugar (cheeni) can also be used, I personally prefer using jiggery over sugar. This chutney tends to have a thick consistency due to the soaked and sticky tamarind. It is a very simple recipe to make, and is absolutely handy and valuable when it comes to serving anything. Imli ki Chutney makes a memorable escort to Samosas, Kachoris, Dahi Vadas, Dhoklas and many other dishes. This velvety brown chutney manages to whisper a lot more than just sweet-nothings.
