Quick Tamarind Chutney

Tamarind chutney is a sweet-tart dark mixture with a wonderful flavour.  Tamarind is available at Asian or Indian stores, some health food stores and some supermarkets.  I also sometimes substitute with tangy (not sweet) prune butter.

Makes about 175 mL.

  • 125 g tamarind in a block
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  1. Place tamarind and water in small pot on high heat.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring to break up block.
  3. Simmer 5 minutes or until tamarind has become a thick liquid.
  4. Strain pressing down in the sieve.
  5. Return to pot, add coconut milk and sugar and simmer until just combined, about 2 minutes.
  6. Cool.
