The Bengali style tomato date chutney is a sweet- savoury-tangy chutney. In a proper Bengali meal, this chutney is used as a palate cleanser and served along with papad just before desserts. This is also a wonderful accompaniment with khichuri (or khicdi). The dominating flavour of this chutney is sweet, unlike other chutneys that are more tangy or spicy.
This chutney is easy and quick to make and can be relished as a chunky dip too. Do give it a try and let me know how you like it.
