“I really love sweet tamarind chutney, and I've had a hard time finding one that resembles the chutney my favorite Indian restaurant makes. This is the closest recipe I've found. I found it on the internet, but can't remember where exactly it came from.”

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir the water into the pan with the spices along with the sugar and tamarind paste.
  4. 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.
