Chutneys are absolutely essential components of many Indian dishes. They help to balance the flavors and totally levels up a dish. Chaats use a sweet, spicy and savory chutney. An example would be this khajoor ki chutney, garlic chutney and cilantro chutney. It would also taste great served on a cheese board.
My Mom makes this similarly to Apple Butter Chutney, which is another quick chutney to make.
This recipe only needs a few ingredients
- Sugar – you can substitute jaggery
- Spices – red chilli powder, cumin/coriander blend
- Lemon juice

Khajoor ki chutney is a sweet and mildly spiced date chutney without tamarind (imli). It is tasty and very easy to make. Khajoor means dates, the dried fruit. Khajoor chutney goes great with pani puri, chaats, sev pur, samosas and so much more.

- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cumin coriander powder dhana jeeru
- ½ tsp red chili powder
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
