I try to make chaat for dinner once a week. My family simply love that day and look forward for it. I do try to make it healthy like using moong sprouts or chickpeas with loads of vegetables like grated carrots or cucumber. But the sweet chutney is mandatory even if its healthy or just junk. I usually make the sour or khatti chutney as it is called by just adding tamarind and jaggery. But I decided to use dates in my chutney for the sweetness and reduce the quantity of jaggery in it.I used a quarter cup of jaggery and may even reduce it further next time. This was another way to make my family have dates. My mom used to make it this way.
It was really delicious and I also used it as a side dish for parathas and it was really delicious. I love to have extra sides in my plate along with veggies and dal. The roasted cumin powder gives a nice flavour. I have never used black salt , but I think it should really work here. Keep the consistency according to your dish you are preparing. I used a thinner consistency of the same for pani puris too, slightly thicker for bhel and even thicker for the other chaat varieties.
So do make this and store it. It really comes in handy!!
