Tamarind chutney, an easy and super flavorful combination of sweet and sour. This versatile chutney can be used for various kinds of foods. Like I love eating it with plain steamed rice or fried chickpea fritters. It tastes amazing and you will not feel need of any other side dish. Whenever I prepare tamarind chutney, I make an extra batch since it does not last very long in my refrigrator.
