Tamarind – 1 cup loosely packed

Black Salt / Kala Namak – 2 pinches
Sugar – 2 tsp
How to make the Tamarind chutney
Wash and soak the tamarind in water for about 15 mins for it to become soft. Extract pulp from it.
Likewise soak the jaggary and remove the impurities.
In a pan, take the tamarind water and bring to boil. Continue boiling till it becomes little thick. Add the jaggary water and continue cooking.
When the liquid is quite thick, add the red chili powder. It will start to boil over.
Simmer and add the cumin powder, Kala Namak, sugar and chat masala.
Sim for another 10 mins and check if the chutney is thick enough. It should not be thin and dropping, but rather thick to touch.
When done, cool and preserve.
