Dates and Tamarind Chutney/Khajur aur Imli ki meethi chutney

An ideal condiment for pakodas, samosas or any savoury fried snack is dates tamarind chutney. I prepared this chutney to go along with Kutchi Dabeli. It is very easy to prepare and lasts long. If stored in a refrigerator it could be used for even 2-3 months.
I share here a simple way to make dates tamarind chutney.
