The moment one thinks of chaat or any North Indian snack for that matter, Sweet Chutney immediately comes to mind. While it is one of the key ingredients in the preparation of chaat recipes, it doubles up as a tongue-tickling accompaniment for any snack like samosa or tikki .

The combination of dates and tamarind with a dash of spices gives the Sweet Chutney a sweet and tangy flavour, which is absolutely fabulous.
