  3. Hi Manjula aunty,thank you so much for sharing your recipe.I tried your recipe and its really nice n yummy.I tried milk cake,chickpeas patties,pakoras etc …. thank you so much

  4. I made this today, it came out really good, but it was little sweet for Indian breads or rice dish(as per my taste bud) but perfect as a jam. So next time would add less sugar and little more pepper.
    I also chopped dates into smaller pieces and mashed the chutney with a spoon(while it was still warm) to give it a semi solid consistency with small chunks of dates and raisin in it!! 🙂
