Date tamarind chutney is a key ingredient in any chat recipes like Dahipuri, Sev puri, Bhel, Ragda petis and many more. You can make this chutney and store it in a freezer for 6 months and 3 months in refrigerator. I generally make it in a bulk and store it in different small containers in a freezer.
