Learn how to make super simple and flavorful Khajur ki chutney. Khaur i.e. dates lend a lovely sweet flavor to the dish and we balance it out with spice from dried red chilli, add earthy tones from sesame seeds, cashew nuts and peanuts. To aid digestion, add asafoetida and seasning from sugar and salt.
This chutney can be used as a spread on sandwiches and wraps, on bagels or with any Indian meal. I love to enjoy it with Indian appetizers and snacks.
