Talk of chaats, samosas, and kachoris and we just can't imagine them without some chutney on the side. And what better than tamarind chutney made with jaggery. This sweet and sour chutney adds to the flavour of your dish and makes it even more delicious.

The sweetness of jaggery and the tang of tamarind together give us a delicious chutney combo. Not only these two ingredients taste great but they are also great for your health. Tamarind or imli improves digestion, helps in weight loss, helps in managing diabetes, and boosts the immune system. Gur or jaggery, on the other hand, is known to control blood pressure, easing out menstrual pain, improving energy levels of the body and purifying the blood.
