Though I had seen a number of dates pickle recipes, a chutney was new to me! It needed only few ingredients and was so simple.I prepared it on a salkkaaram day, without any hope. But for my surprise, every one asked it again.Nowadays mom makes this most of the days, it seems she forgot our poor old local chammanthies.. :) Enjoy this sweet chutney!
