The shelf life of Tamarind-Date Chutney:

  • It stays good in the freezer for more than 5-6 months. 

How Do I Freeze the Tamarind-Date Chutney? 
  • Take the ice cube tray and pour the chutney into the ice cube tray and keep in freezer till it gets frozen.
  • Once it’s frozen, then remove the cubes and put them in ziplock bags and keep in the freezer.
  • Whenever needed, defrost the cubes by removing the zip lock bag from the freezer.

My Take:
  • If you want chutney thinner, you can add some water and make it thin as per your requirement. Don’t add water to the whole batch; otherwise, it decreases the shelf life of chutney.
  • If you don’t have dates, then you can make chutney only with tamarind, jaggery, and spices.
