You want to make instant sweet chutney for chaat. But you do not have dates? Thought making tamarind based one that has no dates. I have the other dates tamarind chutney already posted in my sev puri post in my initial blogging days itself. This is another version, quick and easy to prepare.

I realized what they use in Kailash parbat Singapore is more like a sauce/ syrup than what I make at home. Since I use dates it is way more thicker. So always wanted to recreate Kailash parbat style sweet chutney at home. I have no idea why I thought so much. It’s so simple to recreate just by skipping the thickening factor. Or atleast just add a little.

As you know from my last post, I have pori at home and wanted to make bhel puri. So prepared both sweet chutney and green chutney this weekend. Aj demanded bhel puri and have promised him some as we have been craving for a long time now. Miss KP chaat items, but that is not going to stop from making at home and enjoying chaats.
