Tamarind Chutney

Ingredients for tamarind masala.

Tamarind - big lemon sized soaked in water / tamarind extract/tamarind paste
Jaggery -1/4 cup
Jeera powder - 1/4 tbl spn
Garam masala (optional) - 1/4 tbl spn
Salt a pinch

1) Squeeze the tamarind juice and pour it in a vessel and bring it to boil.
2) Add jaggery, jeera powder, garam masala powder and salt and bring to boil once again.
3) Keep boiling till the mixture thickens. (The mixture will thicken even more while it gets cooled) so turn off from boiling before it gets very thick.

Tip: Once the tamarind juice sticks on the spoon while mixing it, t is almost thickening.
