Sweet and Tangy Tamarind Chutney

This is a very common recipe in India, I usually make this for my Aloo tikki Chaat. It goes really well with deep fried foods.The ingredients you need are few and might already be available on hand.Green chutney and Sweet chutney are the two key ingredients in most of the Indian Chaat dishes. Both the recipes are very simple to make at home and shelf life is couple of weeks if we refrigerate. We can make yummy chaat dishes for a wonderful evening making use f these chutneys.
