Sweet Chutney Recipe

Dates Tamarind Chutney(Sweet Chutney) and Green Chutney are the 2 most important chutneys for most of the chaats like dahi puri,dahi papdi chaat, bhel puri, dahi vada etc etc.

Does anyone say no to chats?! I am not a crazy fan of chats but then few items like dahi poori and pav bhaji are my fav. One fine day when I was craving for a chat and it was raining outside, I decided to give a try at home myself. So my first attempt was to make these chutneys ready. And these chutneys comes in handy for sandwiches too, it gives a nice flavour to it.Stay tuned for the low fat chats coming up soon here...so get ready with ur chutneys and store them in advance :)
