This is an East Indian sweet tamarind chutney.

Sweet Tamarind Chutney


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 0.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 0.5 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 0.5 teaspoon asafoetida powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 cups water
  • 1.125 cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons tamarind paste



Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. 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.


Stir the water into the pan with the spices along with the sugar and tamarind paste. 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.
