  • 20 years later and the little sucker has remained as barren as the day it was planted
  • 1/2 cup of chillies to the mixture and taste before deciding whether or not to add another
  • 1/2 cup of chillies to spice it up
  • 1 kg unpitted soft, dry dates (Barni, Medjool and Halawi are great options but others can be substituted)
  • 1 cup fresh green chilies (I used Thai chilies which had orange+green chillies – add less if you prefer a less spicy chutney)
  • 2 cups fresh coriander/cilantro
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cumin seeds (also known as ‘zeera’)
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons tamarind concentrate/paste
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 quarts or just over
