This is a sweet Indian chutney recipe which combines herbs and spices with tamarind paste and sugar.


Serves: 10 

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 1 1/8 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons tamarind paste

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds, ginger, cayenne pepper, fennel seeds, asafoetida powder and garam masala; cook and stir for about 2 minutes to release the flavors.
  2. Stir the water into the pan with the spices along with the sugar and tamarind paste. Bring to a boil then simmer over low heat until the mixture turns a deep chocolaty brown and is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. This should take 20 to 30 minutes. The sauce will be thin, but it will thicken upon cooling.
