Yasmin's Tetul Chutney (Tamarind Chutney)


5 people made this

About this recipe: Tamarind can be prepared in countless ways to make chutneys. This recipe makes the chutney quite sweet. The chutney is delicious by itself, but can be served with snacks, such as pakoras, samochar, pooris or shingaras. I personally like to have tetul chutney with daal and rice for lunch.
