Quick Tamarind-Date Chutney is a super simple chutney that makes a great accompaniment to everything from curries to rice to veggie burgers. I spotted tamarind-date chutney on Veg Recipes of India and thought it looked delicious but I didn’t have the time to follow the recipe to so I came up with this easy no-cook variation. To make the chutney, simply blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor to firm a delightful sauce that’s the perfect mix of sweet, sour, and spicy. Quick Tamarind-Date Chutney may not prepared in the traditional method but it’s still quite delicious!
