Meetha chutney is a sweet and tangy condiment or chutney had with Indian chaats. It is made with Seedless Dates, Jaggery and Tamarind.

It is used in most Indian Chaat Recipes like Bhel Puri, Sev Puri, papdi chaat and ragda pattice. Indian chaat is incomplete without the accompaniment of Meetha Chutney. The sweetness to the chaat comes from dates and tamarind chutney, it balances the spice, which results in chaat to be sweet and spicy.

Deep fried Indian snacks like pakoda, samosa, batata vada use Mumbai Roadside Meetha Chutney as a dip. Our khatta meetha chutney is easy and quick to make as we have used deseeded datas and tamarind and then pressure cooked it.

We even get ready made chutney’s in the market but the home-made meetha chutney tastes excellent!! So make it at home and you can store it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator, and freeze it. The Meetha Chutney stays for 3 months.
