Still I can remember, my father couldn't finish his lunch except a sweet chutney dish, so my mum used to make chutney and stored it in the refrigerator. This chutney brings back a lot of childhood memories. From my heart and soul, I am the follower of my father. In my mind I always consider my parent as my 'Guru'. So this scrumtious flavourful chutney dish I dedicate to 'My Guru'.

22-25 Dates/khejur (seedless & chopped)
