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. It would also taste great served on a cheese board.

Chutneys are absolutely essential components of many Indian dishes. They help to balance the flavors and totally levels up a dish. I  Chaats use a sweet, spicy and savory chutney.  An example would be this khajoor ki chutney, garlic chutney and cilantro chutney.

My Mom makes this similarly to Apple Butter Chutney, which is another quick chutney to make.
