sweet & sour tamarind chutney

Does your mouth water when you hear some one say 'tamarind'? Yes of course my mouthwaters even when I see a chocolate cake or chicken biryani,but the feel is different.My tongue tingles whenever I see tamarind chutney ,its like my taste buds have a life of its own.

This chutney goes very well with chaats and can be stored in the fridge for almost 3 months.
