  • 6 dates deseeded
  • 3 sprigs mint leaves
  • 2 cloves
  • 1/4 inch stick of cassia bark or cinnamon
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 long dried red chilli deseeded
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 25 grams golden raisins
  • 1 small slice of beetroot boiled & peeled
  • 1 medium size ripe banana
  • 1/2 marble size ball of tamarind
  • salt to taste about 1/4 teaspoon
  1. Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste. If you find it a little spicy, the sweetness of the sweet pulao with which it is generally served will balance the spice. However if you are still hesitant, you can add 1/2 a banana to the chutney & grind it again.
  2. Serve with Sweet Pulao. The chutney stays well for upto 2 days when stored in a clean, dry, airtight container in the fridge.
