 Ingredients List

  • 8 oz Pitted medjool dates
  • 1/4 ts Red chili powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Cumin powder
  • 3 c Water
  • 1/2 ts Tamarind paste


This recipe calls for tamarind paste, a sweet-and-sour flavoring made from
the beanlike tamarind fruit. If you can't find tamarind paste, add 1/2 cup
honey and 1/2 cup vinegar to dates during cooking.

Place dates in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Cook until soft and
tender, about 25 minutes. Or cook dates for 15 minutes in a pressure
cooker. Set cooked dates aside to cool.

Puree dates in small batches in a food processor or blender, adding a
little water as needed to make a smooth paste.

Melt tamarind and spices to pureed dates. Stir well. Add more water as
needed to make a thick sauce.
