Serves: 2

    • 4-5 fresh and ripe plums.
    • Half tablespoon of raisins.
    • Around 4-5 dates, especially Medjool dates, as they have a soft and rich skin, a chewy texture and a caramel-like taste while regular dates have a firm outer layer and are a bit less sweet than the prior.
    • One-fourth teaspoon of black cumin seeds.
    • Half teaspoon of roasted cumin seeds.
    • A dried red chilly.
    • A small-sized bayleaf.
    • A pinch of turmeric.
    • Half cup of powdered jaggery.
    • Two tablespoons of mustard oil.
    • Salt to taste.

How to Prepare
    • Wash the plums, deseed them and cut them into small pieces.
    • In a half-filled bowl of lukewarm water, soak raisins and dates.
    • In a pan, heat the mustard oil.
    • Put black cumin seeds and allow them to crackle.
    • Put dried red chili and bay leaf in and saute them for a few seconds.
    • Add plums and soaked dates.
    • Add turmeric and salt to taste.
    • Cook on a medium flame for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    • Add soaked raisins and jaggery and mix well.
    • Cook further for 10 minutes.
    • Once you see that the ingredients are cooked or that they have become very mushy, take small amounts of the chutney in your palm and taste it.
    • Add more jaggery if you like it a bit sweet.
    • Add roasted cumin seeds.
    • Mix well and serve with your favourite snack.
  • To thicken the consistency of the chutney, take a teaspoon of whole wheat flour and prepare a lump free paste by adding some water. Put this mixture in the chutneys a minute before taking the pan off the heat.
